6 Jumping Lunges (2-count)”Pleasure was the ego seeking instant gratification. Pleasure was the second piece of chocolate cake. Happiness, on the other hand, was walking down the lane 2 pounds lighter and feeling more energy because of the new program of exercise and healthy food. That was happiness. Pleasure was the extra cake being chewed up in the mouth. That was pleasure. Happiness was often the feeling of being lighter and more in control of your life force…Pleasure did not last. And pleasure was worse than that. Not only did pleasure not last, it did something even more upsetting. It turned itself around. It turned itself inside out…Because what was happening now? I am only an hour past the eating of the cake, and I am feeling a little sick! A little bloated! Where’s the pleasure? It was the best devil’s food cake ever! Why can’t I still enjoy it? What kind of cruel joke does pleasure play on me?”
