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.

A Fully Fabulous Day

I had three fighters to train today with this being the location of the second fighter.
I love these nontraditional spaces but must admit I'm super eager to set up my clubhouse.
 Just recently I joined a Facebook womens-only group and today they had a meeting so I attended.
It was awesome to meet some positive women and they're so incredibly supportive of each other.
Likewise, it was awesome to treat myself out to a good, hearty and overly healthy meal.
I love my meals from the Six Pack Chef but it is nice to eat out every once in awhile.
Tomorrow there's a big boxing tournament going on in Quezon City so today my boxing club hosted the weigh-ins for all the fighters.  It was great to have one of the coaches and some of the fighters from my previous boxing club here in the Philippines stop by the club.  I do miss Elite Boxing in Makati.
And then this particular fighter came walking in.  He's Manny Pacquiao's eldest son, Jimeul, and tomorrow he's fighter.  Talk about being under the pressure; his dad is like a god here in the boxing community.
