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.

Stronger this Weekend

Today it was my beautiful girl Pyen Chi's birthday.  She turned 8.
I miss moments like these, all the time.  Moments where I was surrounded by my 3 four-legged babies and in pure bliss as they so eagerly distracted me.

As you know, Balboa is here with me in the Philippines and I know he absolutely loves being the only child.  He gets so many hugs, kisses and cuddles.  Here's me trying to go to the boxing club but going in for more hugs and kisses.
Showed up at boxing and was the only one training.  Later, some joined me but right at closing.
Feels good to be back at training.  
I was told to "train like a human, not an athlete" today... ya, like that happened.
You're only as happy as you let yourself be, you get the love you think you deserve, 
and you only become the person you decide to be.  Straight up truth, I love it.
