Thanks so much to Zappos for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
I am soooooo excited that swim season is finally here! I have been yearning for the sun with all this rain we’ve been having in the Bay Area! Since moving here, I’ve actually become Vitamin D deficient and have to take a supplement every day, ha! Because of the gloomy weather, I was immediately drawn to this bright orange colored one-piece.

As you guys know from this post, I have been upping my health and protein game pretty seriously in 2018. After I published the post about my body fat and counting macros, I got a TON of questions about how I hit my protein goal for the day. My trick is: protein powders. Since I can’t eat dairy, I am extremely picky about the protein powders I use. Thanks to Walmart’s new Healthier Together initiative, they have a ton of plant-based proteins available!
Here’s something you might not know about me: I used to NEVER take swimsuit photos from the side. I would try, but when I would see them I would always cry in shame. The truth is, behind my body positive and confident attitude, I was still always a little insecure about my body. I talked about how I kind of felt like a fraud in this post, but now I can truly say that I am proud to be posing from the side in this beautiful Becca suit that makes me feel all kinds of confident.
As many of you know – from Ashley’s post here – we are both working with a macros nutritionist/trainer. She is singlehandedly helping us take back our health. I can honestly say, since working with her, I haven’t had one migraine, I feel so much less tired, and I know I am on the road to having my healthiest pregnancy yet. As Ashley talked about, it can be hard to hit the right amount of macros every day, but by adding a little bit of meal prep into your weekly routine, it is easy to set yourself up for nutritional success.
So this post has been a long time coming. But before I get into it; I need to make a disclaimer. I in no way shape or form am a fitness or diet expert. I don’t feel 100% comfortable giving advice to anyone about this because I don’t have the qualifications to do so. I am simply sharing my story and what has worked for me. These pictures were taken almost exactly six months apart, and the outfit is by the same exact brand. Keep reading to find out how a body fat scan and counting macros changed my life and my body.
