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.

Pains and Gains

Started the day off with giving Balboa his meds.  I have to take one of those horse-size pills, break it in half, and then basically shove it down his throat.  Balboa is such a champ though, he takes it with stride and let's me do it.  Perhaps it's because I bombard him with kisses after.
 Before breakfast had a change to touch my lips and coffee was even made, I was downstairs training.
 Sunday morning gains.

It's Canada Day, happy birthday Canada -- so I celebrated it with some maple syrup and some Canadian eats at my friend's restaurant.  The maple syrup was such a sweat surprise.  It came about after I was telling the bartender at The Refined that of the things (products) I miss in Canada, maple syrup was one of my top three.  Next thing I knew it he was pulling a bottle out from behind the bar.  I went home and there it was.  He had put it in my bag as a gift.
