Everything seems O.K. Except you need way more carbs pre and post workout...not just a shake. You want slow digesting carbs and more protein for pre workout..bout 45 minutes-1 hour before a workout
Which include chicken reast etc for protein source...
and slow digesting carbs like sweet potatoes, brown rice, oats, pinto beans, high fructose fruits) whole grain bread

Then you need to drink your shake right after your workout for a quick carb source t ofill up the empty glycogen levels..then when you get home..fix anohter protein meal (chicken breast, etc..) then you need more carsb during this meal than anytime, and fast absorbing so you get carbs into your system a lil quicker.
Which are
rice cakes
veggies like carrots..peas etc..

and throw in some fast digestive carbs with it if you like

But your diet is alright..but for a bulk you would like to have more carbs than anything...maybe bout 40-50 grams of good fats, or according to your bodyweight..make sure you getting about 500 calories above maintenance level to start adding weight or mass) Or you wont be adding anything.
