Hey Sam,
Good to see you posting a log,
Looks like you are eating really well and getting plenty of calories and protein whilst still eating clean.

Hey Chris,
Yeah I like doing this. It's good setting targets and seeing where I'm at with my food intake each day. I'm sure recording my workouts will be a big help too.
How's the lip?

I really should record my food intake each day, I think I'd probably be surprised how much I eat and the ratios of Carbs, Protein and Fat.
On the workout front, One arm dumbbell clean & press and Full squats are both great compound exercises.
Yeah the Lip is getting there, swollen about 3 or 4 times the normal size and blackish purple, but I've got some ice on it to get the swelling down. I'm playing in a Rugby Tournament tomorrow, so I'm hoping it heals quickly.
