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.

Hashtag Blessed, for Sure... Tuesday, October 23

My favourite person arrived in the Philippines today so the world can continue spinning.

I surprised them at the airport by canceling my morning PT clients and zipping off to the airport in the wee hours of the morning.  He was definitely surprised.

In the evening I hosted my last BoxHIIT Camp session at KMC and then headed out to celebrate today.

Two years ago my changed my life and though I don't publicize things about my private life because of concerns for my own personal safety and because, well, go on a reality show and then tell me you care to share everything, today was very special for me.  So tonight, after my coaching, I headed out to share an extra big piece of carrot cake and some hazelnut hot chocolate.

I am a very happy woman; a blessed woman.
