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.

Brain Fog... Thursday, November 1

I've been dealing with a mad case of continual brain fog lately, seriously.  Some say it's because I work too much, others say it's the sun beating down on my as I walk to boxing and coaching, while others think it's because I need a break from everything.

My head feels like it's in a vice; I'm always somewhat lightheaded.

You know when you try on someone's eye glasses that are way too strong for you but you wear them anyways for fun and you wear them a bit too long?! Well, that's exactly how I've been feeling for the past week or so.

I joke and tell Skittles it's a brain tumor pushing on my head but I know that's nothing to laugh about.

I think it's just anxiety.  Anxiety has been my new shadow for a couple of months now.  It's always with me.  I'm hesitant as to whether or not I should go to the doctor about it because sometimes, in rare moments within the day, I don't feel it, the brain fog and anxiety it is.  But on a daily bases, I definitely feel them both.
