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.

Market Love and Feasting

Sunday morning at the Market with my four-legged faithful companion, Mr. Balboa Button.
He was having a hard time with the heat but then he caught the eye of an adorable little lady who instantly fell in love with him and then he went from struggling from the heat to struggling from all the hugs and love this cutie was giving him.
 Today is my refuel day so I headed out for a refeed meal at Fatburger.
 It was a mix between me hating shopping and me realizing just how many calories I ate that brought me to the point where I eyed those stationary bikes in the store and jumped on one for a quick spin.
I did end up getting a legit workout in the evening, the bike was just a joke.  But before I headed off to training I decided to chop off the sleeves to a crop top sweater I have because, well, let's face it a sweater really isn't needed in the Philippines but the sleeves are perfect for making a shirt for Balboa.

Viola... twinning with Mr. Button, nice.
