As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply 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, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea 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.

Life is an 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.
