You’re not going to build significant muscle in one month nor will you be able to lose significant amount of fat. You also can’t “spot remove” fat short of liposuction. That said, something is better than nothing, and this could be the start of a new routine.

Physique: pick a good lifting program and do it. Greyskull is a good place to start.

Lose fat: Gotta control that diet. Use a calorie calc to get you BMR, and then eat at a deficit. Lifting and eating a deficit will mean you need to eat a high protein diet. Use a macro calculator to help you decide on that.

Overall appearance: Clean your face with a facial cleaner, use a chemical exfoliant, and a face lotion r/skincareaddiction has recommendations. Drink a lot of water. Get a lot of sleep. Avoid booze and high sodium. Pay extra for a good haircut (or keep it shaved/clipped if you’re thin on top like me). Wear clothes that fit, see r/malefashionadvice. Use a dandruff shampoo.

Came here to suggest the Greyskull LP book. The fact that GSLP is your program of choice makes it even more of a good idea too. It’s a great book, and I particularly really found his form cues incredibly helpful since they give you one or two key things to focus on that make a huge difference in form.

On top of that, you get to understand the routine you’re doing a lot better, get ideas for variations/changes to make down the line, and you get additional suggests like frequency work etc.

It’s a really good book: https://www.amazon.com/Greyskull-LP-Second-John-Sheaffer/dp/0615635571

The original program is called Greyskull LP and is described in this book. You don’t really need it though if you plan on following the version posted above.

Just note that by alternating, it means change from one workout to the next. So one time it’s bench press, the next time you’re in the gym its overhead press.
