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.

One Busy, Nonstop Day

The shirt says it all.  Unless you've got breakfast, coffee or pancakes,
don't wake me up early in the morning.
What's smellier than my gear after training?!
My gear after training and then after a full day and full night of sitting zipped up on my bag on a shelf at the boxing club.  This gear right here, wow, I can't even begin to describe just how potent it smells right now.
Yesterday I left all my sparring gear at the boxing club and sprinted home.
It's a 4.5km route that takes me about 50 minutes to walk but, yesterday, in flip flops and in the crazy downpour, it took me 22 minutes to sprint it.
Lots of stuff today today, including sending off some exclusive Empowered Slay gloves..
Then in the evening, after training and after other word stuff, I then had to return 
to the printers to get my new Empowered sweater dealt with.
Mission accomplished.  I'll post a picture of my new sweater tomorrow.  
It's pretty fabulous, not going to lie.  I love it.
