As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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.

Getting the Momentum Going Again

I've been home a lot lately, trying to deal with this food poisoning which means I've been having an extra dosage of Balboa and it's gotten to the point where I can no longer go in the bathroom without him pushing open the door to stare at me.

Shout out to this little guy, my faithful side kick, Mr. Balboa Button. He didn't leave my side when I was stuck in bed with food poisoning and today, when I bounced back and had errands to run, he remained by my side and went with me. He's so sweet but so exhausted now.

It was definitely me against myself today... my need to recover vs my stubbornness. First full day of being able to keep my food down, I'm not totally recovered, but I jumped at the first chance to wrap up my hands, lace up my boxing boots and get some boxing in. It's been 5 days since I've boxed and it was a rough first day back at training. Had a questionable moment when I thought I was going to be sick but I took a breather, resumed and got in a solid workout.
