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 the Week Off on a Very Sweaty Note

With my fight being a week away, everything gets weighed in now, including my preworkout drink and event the lump of wet, gym nasty clothes I wore during training.
Training with Coach Marcelo.  Some days I honestly think he's trying to kill me,... like today. 
Running in the evening.
I checked out a new path I was told about.  I didn't know if there were lights there, well, that and I also was running out of laundry so I got stuck wearing training gear I don't usually wear... so voila.  I looked like a human pylon.
 The Greenway, a 1.6km running route that is basically just a straight away.
...with the most ghetto end.  Is this even the end though?! I don't know.  I didn't care to go any further beyond that broken fence so I was stuck doing laps on this straight, blah path.
