Honestly is there anyway you can go to the gym 5-6 days a week?
My current workout routine is showing results.
Monday - legs
Tuesday - chest/bi
Wednesday - back/shoulders/tri
Thursday - legs
Friday - chest/bi
Saturday - back/shoulders/tri
I work abs every other day and do zero cardio right now because my job is high physical demand.
Honestly one month is too early for dramatic changes. Be sure to measure and take photos once a month to see real progress.
Just do what you can when you can. No bodybuilder started huge...except Coleman srs.I broke my first year goal.

Where to start.
First diet. You're 185lb. You don't need 325g protein, you only need ~180g, even less if you're bulking. 'Plenty carbs' isn't a number and you don't mention fats or calories or maintenance, etc. Read these:
Next, training. Working to failure is not a good thing. You should work to near maximal, leaving around 1 rep in the tank, not failure. As for your routine, check out Jason's 5x5 in the workout stickies.Sports Science & Health Undergraduate
You don't always get what you wish for,
You get what you work for.
Bite off more than you can chew,
Then Chew it!
