Looks pretty solid to me.

Hows the nutrition??

Good to hear about the workout.

My nutrition could use a little work. I eat fairly healthy (mostly fruits, vegetables, meat/chicken/fish) but I don't have much structure. That was the next thing I was going to work on after I got my routine down.

As far as nutrition goes, you know what you should be eating. You just need to eat(a lot). For right now just put food in your face. With more experience you can clean up your diet. You need to get into a routine of training before you can worry about how well you're eating. To lift big or be big you have to eat big.
