January 2024 Wellness Update

With “health” being my word for 2024, I wanted to be proactive in tracking my journey to developing a healthier version of myself and being happy with whoever she may be. To do that, I am going to record my body and the state of my wellness on the first day of every month this year.

Before we get into the January 1st update, I want to recap what the end of 2023 was like.

December Recap:

I still wasn’t going to the gym; I would tell myself to at least do an at-home workout but would never do it. After several takes to film a TikTok and destroying my thighs playing Just Dance, I know it’s time for me to get back into the gym. If not the gym, at least doing at-home workouts. The holiday break definitely gave me the motivation I needed.

Mentally, I was stressed out and overwhelmed. Moving is not easy, and the chaos of being a teacher did not help with it. It took a lot for me to not give up at the end of last year, to say the very least.

Now for January:

Physically, I am ready for a routine. I am ready for consistency and a sleep schedule that makes sense (no more waking up at 4 am to drive 40 minutes to teach; some people can do that, but I cannot) to get back into the gym. This is the weakest I’ve ever felt, and I absolutely hate it.

Mentally, I am slowly working through some weird growing pains and using the sun for a serotonin boost every chance I get to sleep in my apartment. Again, I can’t wait for consistency, so I can wake up every morning to see the sun instead of the darkness or my friend’s couch.

Emotionally, it feels like I am void of all emotion. For some reason, I started suppressing my tears, and I am trying to figure out how to get back to the emotionally expressive person I know I am.

I’m not sure if I’ll see much improvement during the month of January, considering I’m still going through a career transition, but I will give it my best shot.
