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.

I Just Want to Fight... Thursday, June 28

The struggles are many, the struggles are real, but so are the frustrations. 

I got word today that a fellow boxer who just fought this past weekend has already been approached about another fight and no it's not because he's a male fighter and I'm a female fighter.  Yes, there are more male boxers then female ones but that only has little to do with it and I'll leave it at that.

I was beyond frustrated at the news of this and so it threw off my whole workout. 

Coach Adamson is still suffering from jetlag so he was MIA today at the boxing club.  I don't know if that was good or not for me as I was struggling to shake off my frustrations and stay focused, but it meant I trained alone.  I think I might have actually beaten up that heavy bag, not going to lie.  I whaled on that thing and gave it all I had, then took off my gloves, packed up my gear and left after what was a way-too-short ab routine.  

I just couldn't refocus so I left.

I just want to fight.
