Is going to the gym productive at all?

Here's the thing. I went back to the gym today. Which is probably good because i've been paying for it and i didn't go at all last month. But the thing is...after doing 75 flights of stairs on th stair master, 8 miles of bike riding, and who knows how much rowing (on my favorite rowing machine)...I burned probably only about 300 calories according to the machines. Only to  come home STARVING and eat everything in sight....So my question it really worth it to go to the gym? I'm starting to wonder haha.

But honestly. The gym is great. It makes you feel good even if you come home and eat twice as many calories as you burned, so i will keep going even if i'm eating more than i burn. That's 300 free calories right?

Journal Writing...

Today i rediscovered the wonderful blessings that come from journal writing. I admit i am not always good at it. I usually go about a month of REALLY great journaling...and then i don't do it for 3 months (or maybe 6). And then i'll do it again. and then not...etc. But today I took out my journal and i started reading through some old things that i had written in the past year.
I've been going through a little rough patch, but going through my journal i was able to find some things that i'd written and learned in the past year that have helped me. It's kind of funny thinking that something you write can help you feel better later, but it's true. Because really the only person who can make you happy is yourself. So rereading things like your testimony or experiences you had in the past are really great ways to help you feel better.
Anyway, I just thought i would share how good it is to keep a journal.

Life is Wonderful.

I'm so glad the weather is getting better.
And I LOVE this video of Carrie Underwood singing How Great Thou Art!

I feel like Peter...

As i've said before, my absolute favorite story is the one of Peter walking on water. Right now i feel as though I am being distracted by the Storms of life. I feel like i was walking on water...towards Christ; Doing everything I should be doing, and then life took a turn and the storms started. Then, just for a moment, I let the storms distract me from what is really important. But as always, Christ isn't going to let us sink, he always pulls us up before we drown.

Thank goodness for Easter to remind us that there is someone who knows what we go through. Who is here to help us get through the storms of life.

“In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”
“As one of His special witnesses on earth today, this glorious Easter Sunday, I declare that this is true, in His sacred name—even the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior—amen.”
—President Thomas S. Monson
