Talking Cupcakes vs The 3 Martha's
Friday, November 23, 2012
Martha 1 is the fat girl that will always live inside of me. I'm not sure what will end her for good, but as long as I like to eat junk, she is there... calling to me, offering me that immediate and short lived comfort of eating sweets and other treats with no regard. She is often makes me do things without even realizing it, yet she is also very controlling... forcing me to do things I know I shouldn't.
Martha 2 is me. I watch Martha 1 buying 2 candy bars and gobbling them down while no one watches. I watch Martha 1 buy the bag of pork rinds and the xxxxl dr. pepper and enjoy it all for lunch. I watch her in slow motion. I watch her with shame and think how can she do this and not care. Martha 1 laughs at Martha 2. "Don't worry about it.", she says, like Martha 2 is an idiot. Martha 2 is the girl who is logging her food and GOYAAMING. (Get Off Your A$$ And Move) Martha 2 likes to overpower Martha 1, but can't do it alone.
Martha 3 is the determined Martha. She doesn't care for Martha 1 at all, but realizes perhaps she can be tamed with a little moderation. Martha 3 knows Martha 1 can't be totally denied, but she can be tricked and surprised with yummy healthy treats and modifying others. Martha 3 is good at shutting Martha 1 up. Martha 3 helps Martha 2 decide a lot of "this or that's. Martha 3 is the one that tells Martha 2 what she's gonna eat the next day and Martha 2 follows those instructions and does it. :) Martha 3 is awesome.
A new spark friend said on her page, "I refuse to take orders from a cupcake." This makes me laugh every time I think about it. Martha 1 and this army of beer, chips and sweets... hollering at me! And Martha 2 and Martha 3 giving them all the finger!
