Description

Do you wake up every day with a to-do list that gets results for everyone else... but taking care of yourself is NOT on the list?

Welcome to Your Midlife Comeback Story, the podcast for successful women in midlife to create their ultimate comeback by prioritizing their health so that their high-achievement lifestyle no longer clashes with unwanted weight gain, lack of energy, and restless nights.

I'm your host, Holly Bertone. I'm a former FBI Chief of Staff turned Certified Holistic Health Coach, and I help women in midlife find the clues to improve their health. 

What I noticed is that while we're successful with our careers and families, those same action strategies don't work when it comes to sustainable habits for our health.

I learned this the hard way after being diagnosed with breast cancer and an autoimmune disease, and I knew there's more to life than burning the candle at both ends. I decided to take back control of what's most important in life, and I'm here to help you do the same.

Tune in every Friday for tactical action plans and inspirational stories so that you can create your midlife comeback story that is worthy of an 80's movie montage!

You might be eating weed killer for breakfast. If you or your kids eat one of these popular cereals for breakfast, you’re ingesting harmful amounts of glyphosate, which is also known as the popular weed killer, Roundup. Most people think that glyphosate is safe, because our government says so. But there’s $10 billion dollars worth of lawsuit payouts that say otherwise. On today’s episode, we’re diving into glyphosate, why it’s so controversial, the hidden sources and danger, plus… ...

Do you enjoy the failures, the disappointments, and the difficult times? I’m guessing probably not. Most people don’t. Most people don’t wake up and say I can’t wait to be a failure today woo hoo!

I believe that failure is THE BEST path to achieving success.Today, we are going to answer the question… how does failure actually propel yo...

You know when you hit your late 40’s and into your 50’s and you feel stuck and not really sure about what you want to do in your life? It’s like you know you are meant for more, but you aren’t quite sure what that is, or how to even figure out who the real you actually is. And you ask yourself… what is actually possible for me?

If you ever wanted to know if I had any regrets about my breast cancer treatment, I’m going to share the answer to that awkward question in today’s episode. This episode isn’t just for someone who is currently going through treatment or is a cancer survivor. This episode is for every single woman who listens to my podcast. In last week’s episode 122, Mindset Magic for Radical Results, I asked Christie Miller the question… if she had a magic wand to change her journey with cancer, would s...
Should I introduce this episode by telling you that my guest was born premature and addicted to drugs? Should I introduce this episode by telling you that my guest annihilated stage 4 breast AND brain cancer to the point where she is called a radical remission miracle? I think I’ll just say… if you feel like your life needs a boost, and you want to uplevel the results you get in any area of your life, this is the episode for you.My guest today is Christie Miller. Christie is a fun-loving, act...
Have you ever found yourself thinking… can a day go by without someone bringing up the pandemic? It’s still a part of the fabric of our lives, whether we want it to be or not.It was “the great reset” for us. But it also left us absolutely crippled as a society with a new epidemic with the increased mental health crisis. Increased anxiousness. Increased depression. Increased suicide. We lost our way on how to navigate back to homeostasis. On today’s episode, we are going to answer the question...
One of my biggest pet peeves with the health and wellness industry is that so often, the focus is ONLY on nutrition and exercise, when in reality, there are many other factors that combine to create our overall well being. The reality is that there is a very specific throughline that connects our business life with our personal life and health and that’s what today’s episode is all about. My guest today is Heather Stewart. Heather Stewart helps You BECOME Your Best Self.She helps yo...
We look at our health and our career or business and the common denominator that I hear over and over again is… just tell me what to do and I’ll do it. As women in our 40’s and 50’s, we have demanding schedules, it’s hard to find the bandwidth to have the space to think for ourselves when everyone and everything is screaming at us and we are running from one fire to another.I’m here to tell you that the second you start to defy society’s norms is the second that you will start to have agency ...
This is part 2. Part 1 was where I shared the story of how I went from the FBI to becoming a holistic health coach… most of the story I had never shared publicly before. In this episode, you are going to get the ugly and the messy part that happened next. You can listen to this episode independent of part 1, which is the last episode, but if you are a chronological kinda gal, then listen to episode 117 before jumping into this one.Together, we will unpack:How my methodology differs from ...
I’m just going to say it. If you were ever curious about what I did at the FBI, or how on earth I went from being the Chief of Staff for the FBI’s Counterintelligence Program’s Program Management Office to becoming a holistic health coach, this is the story that you are going to get today. I’m sharing details of that part of my career that I never shared before – how young I was when I decided I wanted to work there, how I got there in the first place, some highlights of what I did… and even ...
The concept of everything in moderation is a good concept in theory.It’s just one piece of cake.It’s a special occasion, enjoy some dessert.But everything in moderation is the biggest lie ever. Yeah, we’re going to open up this can of worms on today’s episode. Because we say this phrase often and we say it convincingly. But have you ever given any thought to what it actually means and what are the consequences?For the record – I’m not anti-moderation because at the end of the episode, we’re a...
If I were to say that diets suck and they don’t work, I truly believe that 99.9% of you will agree with me. They do suck.Why? Because when you go on a diet, you need to eat lots of salad a.k.a. rabbit food. Rabbit food sucks. You’re not full and you get hangry. You complain how much you hate this. And then the first obstacle that comes your way, you quit and it’s just becomes easier to go back to eating what you normally eat.That pretty much sums it up. But have you ever wondered why they suc...

One thing is for certain is that the journey to improving your health is going to have lots of obstacles and things that will want to derail you. It’s easy to focus on and give our attention to what is screaming the loudest.

When it comes to improving your health, weight, energy, or sleep, have you ever said… just tell me what to do and I’ll do it? You are looking for the thing to do to get the result.Or the other one that I hear is that you will tell me that you know exactly what you’re supposed to do.Let’s break this down. If you know what you are supposed to do, why aren’t you doing it? And if you are doing the thing the expert tells you to do, why isn’t it working? And when you start, why is it such a struggl...
When it comes to improving your health and wellness, well actually… pretty much anything in life… there’s one very specific thing that is going to catapult your success. This is the one thing that separates the woman who see results from the woman who doesn’t. It is also the one thing that most people either roll their eyes at, or dismiss, or run away from. It is designed to create the most resistance, because it’s the one thing that will guarantee progress and results.In this episode, we wil...
If you are in your 40's or 50's give or take, I’m guessing you have tried it ALL when it comes to improving your health. As women with demanding schedules, we go a million miles an hour and we don't stop. Between our career and spouse and kids and even grandkids and aging parents and volunteer stuff and community stuff… we do not have any time for ourselves.And then when it comes to things like... I want more energy or I want to get back into my old jeans or I just want to feel better about m...
