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.

Trying to Be "Christmasy"

I love the Philippines and it's rainy days but with Christmas just around the corner it'd be nice to replace those beautiful palm trees with pine trees and the rain for some snow.  I tried to push myself into the Christmas spirit today by picking up some Christmas gifts.  First on my list, pizza for the coaches at Elite.
Balboa, of course, was on my list of Christmas gifts to get.  They even wrapped it for him, sweet.
No bootcamp today on account of the holiday so in between getting those presents 
and hitting the gym, I got to lounge with Balboa for a bit.
Last workout before the boxing club closes for the Christmas holiday.  
It's only closed for 2 days but in my world that may as well be 2 years.
 I didn't get to see Coach Bogs and give him his card so I'll have to wait till next week now.
