Nick's bigger than christmas log

Right so I have been saying for a long time that I am going to get serious about my training and diet and really make some progress, but I keep putting it off. I have been training for 2 years but have only been to the gym a handfull of the times in the last month.
 
I am looking to do Frankie's 5x5 workout to get a good solid foundation. My current stats are:
 
Age: 21
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 84kg
 
Lifts
Bench: 90 x 5
Squat: 130 x 5
Deadlift: 150 x 5
 
The only supplements I will be using at the moment are whey and creatine. The main issue that has prevented me from really making good progress has been my diet. I have done some research and decided that I will follow something like this, although any help or advice is much appreciated.
 
Breakfast - Porridge, whey shake, multivitamin  
Morning Snack - Turkey/chicken roll on wholemeal bread
Lunch - brown rice, chicken breast, broccoli, green beans
Afternoon Snack - Handful of mixed nuts and banana
Evening Meal - Brown rice, chicken breast/fish, broccoli, green beans
Post workout - whey shake, banana/apple
Before bed - cottage cheese
 
I am going to stay as strict as possible and pre-cooking my meals should help this. I will get some pics up soon so that I have something to compare against.

    Went to the gym Tuesday not Wednesday*

    Went again today hoping to do the push workout as my back was still slightly tender but the gym was packed so had to go to the squat rack and did legs.
     
    squat 100 x 5 was ok could have done more but didn't want to burn myself out straight away.
    stiff legged deadlift 100 x 5
    leg press 170 x 1, 190 x 1, 200 x 1 210 x 1 220 x 1 didn't think I would have managed that shoudl have started at a higher weight really. 
    25 mins cardio on bike
