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.

Did Anyone See?!... Tuesday, November 7

I may have just had the most embarrassing moment of my entire life tonight, at the boxing club.  I wasn't actually aware of it until I got home, turned on the shower, and then started to get undressed.  Off went the tank top, off struggled the sports bra, and then off came the leggings, well almost.  I was pulling down my leggings when all of a sudden what should catch my attention but a massive hole in the middle of them. 

Correction, not "hole" but "holes", as in plural!!!

And take a guess as to where such holes were... yup, the crotch area!!!  "OMG" is right!

I must have said "oh my goodness" about a trillion zillion times as I stood there stiff like a deer caught in the headlights, totally and completely shocked at how I could see my toes through these two massive holes in the crotch of my leggings.  

I was at the boxing club tonight for about two hours, doing my boxing and then hitting the weight training hard with the kettlebells.  Did I expose myself to everyone there?!  The club was packed, it's always packed at night.  Great, all the more people I possible showed my crotch to, just fabulous... oh gosh.

Some of the coaches from my boxing club were going to come over to use my condo pool if they were able to close the club a bit early.  They ended up working overtime and, to tell you the truth, I was rather relieved.  It bought me some time... time for them to forget (ya right) and time for me to build up some confidence to deal with the possibility of embarrassing jokes and strange looks.

I still don't know if anyone actually saw anything.  Here's to hoping they didn't.  And here's to hoping one day I can sit back and laugh over this story because right now I can't.  I can't do anything but feel so embarrassed. 

By the way, am I the only one who seems to be blowing out the crotch area of their leggings?!  Seriously.  This is like the fourth pair of leggings I've killed.  I have a pair of leggings that I refuse to give up on.  They've got patches and their patches have patches!
