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.

Happy First Birthday... Sunday, March 24

I always thought a dog licking your face was nasty until I met a little distressed puppy with poop on his face and a broken tail who licked mine. Now I can't get enough.

I wrote that as my Facebook status update because today was Cassius' first birthday.  He's definitely the cutest puppy I've ever seen but he's such a troublemaker.  If he's too quiet or not being watched, trust me, he's up to something bad then.  Whether it's chewing on my shoes, trying to pull the books off my shelf, attacking Balboa, or occassionally hiding a little poop under the bed, he's such a mischevious little one.  But when you get mad at him, you pick him up, and the dumbfounded look on his face just completely melts you and instantly you forget why you were so mad at him.  

I swear his eyes have mystical magic powers; that's the only way I can even begin to explain it.

So tonight, as tradition has it with all my dogs, we bought him a pizza and he shared it with Balboa.
