Default Winter insulation gaining journal

I'm still searching for a program/platform to start off of, should have something worked out within the next two days. For now I'm just reestablishing baselines with Rippetoes.

10/28
Stats:
~172lb
BF est: ~12-13%
1RM's unknown

Here are a few pics from yesterday to use as a base for comparison. Be warned that the direct overhead light is giving me a lot more credit than I deserve Let the eating begin.

The two SS workouts done so far are as follows:

A
Squat: 3x5x205, up 5
Bench: 3x5x175, try a 5lb increase
DL: 1x5x325, relatively easy but in the interest of not hitting it too hard too soon I'll leave it at a 5lb increase
Accessories: done

B
Squat: 3x5x210 up 5
Overheads: 3x5x100 could go up 10 probably, but will stick with 5
Rows: 175 ehhh...keep.
Pullups: 3x9 w/ 35lb keep
Accessories: done

10/29 A
Squat: 3x5x215 felt good, was going to do another set but somewhere in the 3rd set I tweaked a muscle in my lat area. Not sure how, but I didn't want to push it any farther. Up 5.
Bench: 180 going to keep it, though I could try an increase I'd rather not stall out too soon
DL: 1x5x330. Pretty easy, I'm thinking stick with 5lb increases for the above stated reasons, though I'm considering a bigger increase given that the lift in question is deadlifts. Any thoughts?
Accessories: done

Finding some good info online on choosing programs and such, for any other relative noobs such as me this is a pretty good resource

The Setback Journal:
I've been gone a month, you've probably noticed. This is because I had the devout pleasure of entering a MMA match with a Chevy Suburban. Here's how it went:

ME:
Collapsed lung
2 broken femurs/pins inserted
ruptured stomach
concussion
limbs hacked/mangled/bloody/broken
coma
removed spleen
countless other injuries

SUBURBAN:
totaled (small victories)

the worst part for me is going from putting 400lb over my head to not being to sit up in bed. It'll come back. Until then...sporadic checks and updates.

Wow, that's terrible to hear. Just focus on healing and staying positive. Don't start thinking about what was. Just where you are now and that you'll be a little bit stronger every day. When I got out of Iraq, I was nailed with viral meningitis and woke up 2 weeks later in a hospital in San Diego with a midline all the way up my arm. I weighed 156 lbs with a full beard. It does take a while to heal. Just take baby steps man. That's what I did.

Just update us whenever you have spare time.
