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.

Always Under Construction

Like every Sunday, today's Sunday started off with a trip to the Legaspi Sunday Market.
I love this scene not because of the pool but because of the contrast of the pool with the building being constructed in the background.  Some days I look up at that building and feel just like it, constantly under construction, and then other days I wonder if it'll be built before my business gets fully off the ground.
This is the 5th ever bikini shot I've taken of myself and posted on Instagram since I arrived here in the Philippines 256 days ago yet I can't even count how many times I've been in it.

It's funny to look at it, personally that is, because I see the flaws in my body and where I want change.  We all want change, I'm no different, and everyday I'm hustling it at the gym, slaying it with the clean eating, and really working towards it.  I've got goals, they're high but others have attained them.  I just lack the patience though, I know.  I know my body has changed but I want more.
 In the evening I headed over to Elite were I was greeted with some sparring between the young guys.
Refusing to let my weekend be my weak end, here I am exhausted after boxing, exhausted after ab work, and holding just enough energy left to pose for a picture with Coach Jun Jun.
