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.

Nursing a Tackling Injury... Wednesday, October 9

No rugby tonight on account of just how mashed up my knee is from tackling on Monday.  I've got quite the chunk of skin missing and it's super nasty.  Ooze is on an all time high and it just doesn't seem to be scabbing over.   I did however get into boxing though, in the morning.  My knee is a bit tight, the skin that is because of the healing process, but for the most part it seemed okay.  I just can't touch it; it's super sensitive to the touch.  Everything was going all fine and dainty until I pretended to kick Coach Marcelo right at the end of training and ended up getting elbowed in the knee.  

I swear I could have puked at just how painful it was.  Ouch!!!

I have a rugby tournament not this weekend but next and tonight at training with the Lady Volcanoes I'm suppose to be participating in a team tournament, but I need to rest my knee and get it heeled up.  Heeled up enough so that I can play next weekend.
