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.

Just Give Me Some Space... Wednesday, June 6

It was just one of those days.

My supplier in Pakistan was being difficult and I just didn't want to hear one more person ask me when my next fight is.  So, to avoid everyone and everything that could possibly frustrate me more, I hibernated. 

Off went the phone.
Off went the computer.
Off went the lights in my place too.

I stayed home all day, just Balboa and I.

The only time I went out of my condo was to walk Balboa and then to watch a movie. 

I only talked to 3 people the entire day and one of them was Balboa.  The other was a service man and the third was Skittles.
