I ran out of whey, so I used 10 egg whites and 1 egg yolk instead. It was morbid.

At night, I walked to the track to drill some boxing and use the jump-rope, but the gate was locked.

Also, I applied for a part-time job at "Sports Gallery", a sports memorabilia place. I noticed that their boxing page on their website had a lot of misinformation on it, and I noted in my resume that I sent to them under "Qualifications", "Particular enthusiasm in the sport of boxing and the history behind much of its memorabilia. For example, from a scan of the boxing section on the Sports Gallery website, I can tell you that Muhammad Ali did not hold the heavyweight title 'off and on for almost 25 years'; from his first win over Liston in 1964 to his retirement in 1979 after regaining the title a third time from Leon Spinks in 1978 (before his ill-advised comeback in the '80s), the reigning span was actually about 15 years." Yeah, that was snobby, but someone has to tell them. Apparently, they like spunk because I'm now due in for an interview on Friday morning. I looked over their staff section, and not one person is into boxing; everyone there likes hockey, football, basketball, and baseball (and all of the above). They need me more than I need them.

Anyways, if that goes through, bulking will be a lot easier.
