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.

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.
