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.

Last Dirty Dish... Sunday, June 3

I had a fight scheduled for May 13th, then my opponent canceled. 
Then they tried to schedule me one for May 22nd, but they couldn't find a sponsor.
The May 28th fight was too low in weight so my coach told me not to take it.

With that initial fight, the May 13th one, I changed every thing -- coach, boxing club,.. even license and manager.  I dropped mad week in the first two weeks in anticipation of the fight and then kept my weight down and held my breath, hoping to hear positive things about the other two potential fights.   Nothing became of them though so then I decided to relax with my clean eating.  It's almost as if I went and rebelled against it for the sake that I know I had really gone so hardcore with my eating and training but with no real goal except the hope of a fight.

Now I'm back to training hard and eating clean.

I got messaged today by a matchmaker, wishing me good luck on an upcoming fight... an upcoming fight that wasn't made official to me yet, a fight that I haven't actually signed the contract for let alone been given the contract for... but apparently it's a fight that's already being advertised.  He passed on the fight card write up and viola, there I was.  It's a four round fight.

Today was the last day of "dirty eating" so I had an ice cream caramel sundae from McDonalds and then in the evening I was treated to probably the best ever sinfully delish but oh-so-good pie.  At Larry's they bake a toffee banana pie that is RIDICULOUSLY delish, it's borderline too good to share actually.  It was the perfect way to give into any sweet tooth craving and say goodbye to them as for the next three weeks I'll be eating super clean.  

I've got a lot of weight to lose in three weeks.  I don't even dare disclose how much... partly because I don't actually know how much.  I haven't weighed myself for almost a month now.  The anticipated fight is set for 105lbs and, if I had to guess, I'd say I'm standing in right now at 120lbs.  

The fight is in three weeks, no pressure.
