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.

Switching Over... Friday, November 24

I have officially left Yummy Diet.

I'm now signed with Dear Diet Ph.

For the past couple of months Yummy Diet has been faithfully delivering my food weekly, five days a week, in the morning.  I've been quite happy with their meals, very happy actually, but if I were to have any kind of complaint it'd be with their snacks.  Usually their snacks consist of a simple fruit, a yogurt or crackers.  Every once in awhile they make an interesting snack, like a small cupcake or pudding, but for the most part their snacks feel like an afterthought, nothing that effort was given to.  Lately their lack of interest with their snacks has really been getting to me.  

In the afternoon, after boxing and after lunch, I sit down to work on Empowered.

Around 3pm I take a little mental break, a snack break.  

Coffee and... ummm... an orange?!  Blah.  Boring.

Of course there are other food delivery service companies that jam pack their meal plans with over-the-top meals and mouth-watering snacks, but they also come with a price that my starving athlete, budding entrepreneur budget just can't handle.  

Yummy Diet was only 2,200Php/$55Cdn a week -- 3 meals a day plus snacks, for 5 days. 

Dear Diet Ph is 2,100Php/$52.5Cdn a week for the same thing but snacks that satisfy my mid-day afternoon mental break cravings.

It's a bit cheaper and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's also better.
