As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at now, living in the land of the happy people.

The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love.

Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Fumbled but Not Out of the Game... Wednesday, July 19

I definitely fumbled the ball in tonight's pass but I don't think I'm totally out of the running.

If I may compare my situation tonight to the game of football here.... not like I really know about football.  I don't actually know much about the game despite my use of it as an analogy so bear with me here.  I promise it's not going to be a big analogy.

I fumbled the ball, I totally fumbled.  The setup was perfect too; I just had to catch the ball and go with it.  There was absolutely no one in my way... no one but me that is.  I had the opportunity to really score big but I fumbled and this isn't the first time I've fumbled.

I really need to put myself out there more, really go for it.  Holding back isn't helping my situation.
