Man, I waited all day for UPS to deliver a package to me.

I recall they delivered a few packages earlier around noon'ish, so I waited.

At 12:00 PM, they still didn't deliver so I still waited, thinking that they would deliver ANY MINUTE NOW.

I had to go to the washroom too, but I held out in hopes of a delivery. But nope, couldn't take it anymore so I went.

Around 2'ish they they didn't deliver, so I went ahead and did my workout anyways. I didn't turn on the music so I could better hear the doorbell.

Well, finished my workout and still no delivery.

5:15 PM arrived, and I still haven't showered yet. Heard the doorbell and my package was left on the doorstep. I thought I had to receive the package in person and sign for it :/

Anyway, what I got is this:

MuscleTech Phase8

MuscleTech Phase8

Ordered a bunch of MuscleTech Phase8 whey protein powder, 2 jugs for each flavor (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry) from

I'm not big on heavily marketed whey protein with ads plastered in health magazines everywhere, but if it's a good deal, I'll take it.

Originally I was going to go for the cheapest whey protein I could find (probably some bulk whey protein concentrate), but this deal came up so I jumped on it.

As a free gift, I chose a pair of lifting straps.

I still have some left over expired whey protein (Ultimate Nutrition Whey Sensation 81), so it may be a while before I try this stuff out.

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
