Ann Jolina's Gym Journal

A Christian Holistic Health Journey

This blog details my journey to lose weight and gain comprehensive health – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I’m going to be transparent with you by sharing what I’m eating, journaling my exercise, creating a playlist of the faith based jams that fuel my workouts, airing my successes/failures (pics and weight included… eek!), and going deep with you about the emotional and spiritual insights gained through the experience. I pray it inspires you to seek the joy and wholeness God has in store for your life.
