Straight and Curly 67: What’s bothering us right now

Despite our best efforts to show people it’s not the case, some people still seem to think Carly and I swan through life without a care in the world. Most likely because neither of us like discussing our problems in the moment – we prefer to talk about the things we’ve fully processed and worked through.

In today’s episode, the first before Straight and Curly takes a break for three weeks, we get vulnerable and share about the things that are bothering us right now:

  • Carly’s worried about the environment and trying to reduce the amount of waste she produces … but finds it hard not to slip into becoming really vigilante about it all.
  • I’ve given up my beloved Flying Solo Editor role and discuss why, even thought it’s a really sensible thing to do … it still hurts.
  • Carly’s very frustrated that having an impeccable diet and working out really hard six days a week for an extended period of time recently yielded very little change on the scales. She’s worried what this means for her future self.
  • At the time of recording, my kids were on school holidays and I was struggling to find the balance between getting all my work done – and giving them a fun school holiday experience.
  • Both of us are frustrated by our propensity for taking on too much and I counsel Carly about what she can do to reduce her load a little.
