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.

Starting Strong... Saturday, November 10

Morning breakfast out.
Morning coaching.
Morning rugby.
Afternoon boxing.
...evening crash.

It was an exceptionally busy Saturday and it wouldn't have been busier if I knew I was able to participate in today's rugby tournament.  I don't care for busier but I do care to play rugby.  I had crashed on Thursday, right before rugby practice started, so I was a no go, no show.  I didn't hear anything from anyone regarding today's game so I figured I wasn't allowed to play because I had miss the last practice before the game.  

I arrived to cheer them on.

They said they were relieved to see me but where were my cleats and shorts.

It's my fault really, I shouldn't have assumed, I should have asked.  

I stuck around to watch them play and it was pretty cool.  They had three games to play today and I watched the first one.  With ten seconds left to the game, our captain, flew with the ball and scored the winning point that broke the tie.  It was pretty epic.

Next weekend there's an out-of-town tournament and I'll be playing with the team.  That means I have about a week to Google the hell out of touch rugby and figure out the rules.  I don't want to be the weakest link on the team but I think it's safe to say I'm the greenest player on the field.  I don't want them regretting letting me be on their team.

Lady Mavericks, today they won 2 out of their 3 games... wicked!!!
