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.

Coffee Break?! Hell Yeah... Wednesday, April 3

By the time 7pm came around, I was completely exhausted and running on total brain drain.  I had coaching I had to be up at 6:30am for, my last fighter trained with me till 6:30pm, and I also had an intense 2.5hr session of boxing today with Coach Marcelo.  I arrived home right around 7pm and just crashed on the bed, totally ignoring the two little four-legged boys licking my face and jumping all over me. 

"Do you want to go for a coffee date -- 8pm?"  I asked Skittles.

"Sure.... let's make it 8:30pm", he replied.

A coffee date, my new go-to for stopping e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and taking a mental break from work.

My go-to is the new Tim Horton's coffee shop in Forbes Town.  I splurge and treat myself to a medium double-double even though I know it's so much sugar.  I only do this 2 times a week so I vouch I'm good for the sugar, no problem.  

Returned home around 9:20pm and resumed working till about 1am.

Oh gosh, I have to be up tomorrow at 6:30am.

Tomorrow -- 4 fighters to coach, weight training, rugby and lots of business calls to make.
