In this post I am going to give a rundown of my first Cheat Day, enjoy!

I began the day with my morning workout (Push day, Chest/Shoulders/Tri - More on various workout splits later), after which I had worked up a pretty good appetite. Myself and a couple friends made our way to Christina's Pub, located near the UWO main gates, for some breakfast. I ordered two Linebackers, pictured below. A Linebacker basically consists of two of everything - eggs, bacon, sausages, toast, french toast, pancakes, as well as some delicious home fries. I polished off both in a grand total of thirteen minutes.

Now bear with me, there is a reason I decided to eat so much so fast, aside from the obvious benefit of the excellent post-workout nutrition. That reason is that I am training for what is to be my first real eating challenge. Some of you may be familiar with Furious Pete, but for those who aren't I'll give you a brief rundown: he is a Canadian bodybuilder and competitive eater, but not only that - he is a former anorexic as well. I encourage you all to check out this link to his transformation video, he can explain his story better than I ever could What is extremely interesting about Furious Pete's beginning's as a competitive eater is that it all started in Christina's Pub, London Ontario, with the aforementioned Linebackers. Pretty crazy right? Anyway, my goal is to match the four Linebackers that Pete consumed - but to do so in record time.

While at the mall later that day I discovered, to my pleasant surprise, that the DQ there had finally managed to get October's Blizzard of the Month - The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard! I absolutely adore pumpkin pie, and having it once a year at Thanksgiving just isn't enough for me. Needless to say, this Blizzard hit the spot. If you're a fan of pumpkin pie and haven't yet tried one of these... well then you're not really a fan of pumpkin pie. Seriously, get to your local DQ and try one while you still have the chance!
Mmmmm... Pumpkin Pie

 Later that evening I took my floor (I am a Residence Assistant - or Don if you prefer), to The Mongolian Grill, a buffet-style place in which you pick your meat/veggies/sauces and they grill it in front of you.

As the night was drawing to a close I decided to attempt my first eating challenge - to break the record for the fastest time to consume three Rice Krispies. I managed to do so and you can view my record on here

Finally, to round out the night I bet a friend that I could finish an entire Cheese Strip Danish (over 1600 Calories and 125g of sugar) in under ten minutes. Turns out ten minutes was way too generous a time, as I managed to finish it in under three!

So that was my first cheat day! Hope you enjoyed it, I know I certainly did. Please comment, share your thoughts, post ideas for other challenges, and let me know what your craziest cheat day was like. Thanks for reading!
