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.

Gym Nasty Happy and Flat Out Happy

Sweaty but happy... aren't I always, sweaty that is.... ya, and happy too.
Coach laying ringside and me sitting by, the two of us watching one of the other coaches
go at it in the ring with one of his boxers for some sparring.
One of my favourite places to walk through -- the community I pass to go to and from boxing.
He smiles because he knows I love, love, LOVE his ice candy.
I know some others that love it too so I decided to treat the staff at The Refined to some.
What was suppose to be me simply slipping into The Refined to drop off the ice candy turned into me getting into a Korean conversation with this sweet Korean guy about Korean food.  Turns out he's the hubby to one of the girls I've coached and, as it also turns out, he and his wife want to come over to cook some Korean food at my house.  Ummmm... hell ya!!! That's amazing!!!
Speaking of amazing, this is the amazing view from my condo as the sun went down.
