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.

Jumping Fabulously into a New Week

Look at what has arrived -- my Supreme Diet meals today, prepared by Yummy Diet!!!
All this amazing food and the thing that I was so caught up with was the drip coffee. It smells so good!

It's super easy for me to lose track of the hours, working at home on Empowered, but today I was lured out with promises of coffee.  I try to get out for coffee every second day, if just to get out of the house for 30 minutes.  Today coffee turned into food, food included friends and then a friend showed up with her new puppy.  Meet Ollie, an amazingly sweet little boy, a rescued street dog who is living the good life now.
I posted this picture on Instagram today, it was a moment of saddness today, caught on camera.
Nothing quite cheers me up like a good workout and tonight, as easy as it would have been to just skip out on boxing, I showed up.  I knew that all I'd have to do was just get myself there, that if only I just showed up I'd be instantly pushed into a better mood.  I was correct.
