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 Very Wet Kind of Day

Nothing like Mother Nature frowning down on you, tempting to pour down on you if you don't hurry up and get to boxing.  I was running late and apparently Mother Nature had noticed.
The life of a fighter is train, eat, sleep, repeat.  Unfortunately with fights being hard to come by, as I'm now learning thanks to two opponents now who have canceled, there's more training and sleeping than there is eating but we don't get paid unless we fight.
Thankfully though, there is amazingly delish and ultra cheap street food in this country.
I'm not a fan of Filipino food, I much prefer the spiciness of Korean food, but their street food is ridiculously so damn good.  Today's discovery, garlic roasted peanuts with dried red peppers!!!
The gym in my condo is finally renovated and opened so I headed in tonight for a late 
night sweat sess to help break it in during their soft opening.
