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.

Staying Focused and Staying Sweaty

Kicking my week off with a hearty, healthy breakfast from Yummy Diet.
Today they surprised me with a little gift tucked away in my daily package of food -- body wash.
I don't know if this a sweet gift or a hint that perhaps I need to shower more... hahaha.
The Philippines is a pretty religious country and it's nice because on route to boxing 
I get a dose of daily scriptures via those printed on the bridge poles.  
That first one, 2 Corinthians 5:7, that's inked on the back of my neck actually.

Exhausted but still going.   I was quite surprised to see just how legit the weight training 
area of Insider's Boxing Gym is.  They have a loaded area, I love it!
On route home from boxing I caught a kid's basketball tournament that was being held.
There's always something going on in this part of my walk and I quite like it.
Trying to get some work done after boxing, at a local cafe, turned out to be quite distracting because of not only all the people who wanted to pet Balboa but all the adorable pups I wanted to pet.
