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.

A For Effort, F for Fail... Monday, April 16

I didn't make my weekly weigh-in goal today.  I weighed in at 117.9lbs, that's less than a 2lb drop from last week's 119.68lbs, but my goal was to drop 3lbs.  I can't say I'm surprised though.  I took a kidney shot last week during sparring that really killed things for me with regards to consistency.

Consistency is key.

I missed a day of training and struggled through the next days' training and then for about two days I couldn't really stomach my food.  I didn't eat anything beyond chopped up fruit that following day, Friday. 

No excuses.

Back to the drawing board and back to staying focused and staying consistent because there's no real room for error.  If all else fails, I can bank on leaving the last 5lbs to water weight and leave it to the day before weigh-in but I rather not.  The idea was to drop fast, fast and consistent.
