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.

Thanks Mother Nature... Monday, July 9

Talk of an expected typhoon was all the hype yesterday so I went and moved today's scheduled morning coaching.  It meant I got to sleep in, great, but it also means that tomorrow I have any extra early morning and I'll be walking two hours -- 1 hour there and back -- for a 1 hour PT boxing session.

Woke up today, no typhoon.

Waited around, still no typhoon rain.

Decided that I wasn't in fact going to take today off boxing so I geared up and headed out.

Guess what happened.  Typhoon rain.

Mother Nature is not a friend of mine, apparently, so I showed up at boxing completely soaked.

And what's worse than the smell of training gear?  The bag that the training gear sat in.  It smelt like a$$, seriously.  Walking home from boxing, I knew full well that with every little gust of wind, whomever happened to be walking past me was instantly the victim of my a$$-smelling bag.  Sorry people.

Next on my list-to-do, make a boxing gym bag that is waterproof and doesn't smell like a$$.
