One year later, Mississippi dietitian still enjoying her body by Trikke
Her story was short and to the point, yet it has garnered more hits than any other article in the 15-month history of TrikkeWorld Magazine. Since its publication in April, 2011, Lacey Saul’s Carving off the fat in Mississippi has never really faced a challenger as our most popular story (with nearly 1900 hits, to date), and while that may change in the future, the dietitian from Dixie is still the reigning champ.
So how is the subject and author of our top story doing one year later? TrikkeWorld caught up with Lacey for the scoop in this Q&A:
TrikkeWorld: Update us on the Lacey Saul Story, one year later.
Lacey Saul: Well I’m back y’all and I’ve gone through a few changes. My story still remains the same and it’s better than ever, plus the attention hasn’t been bad either! I’ve enjoyed being contacted by many Trikkers due to my story in TrikkeWorld. I look forward to riding along with you all in the future hopefully, and I plan to become a trainer, as well.
My story is simple, my body is better than ever and I couldn’t be more thankful for the Trikke and how it has changed my life. I love being asked by people how I’ve gotten into such great shape. That gives me the chance to brag on how great the Trikke truly is and how it can change their life.
TWM: Still riding your Trikke?
LS: Yes!! Daily schedule and weather permitting, I try to ride it most days of the week for 30 minutes to an hour. I’ve decided to push myself further and fulfill my dream of running in the Walt Disney World Marathon (and smaller races, as well). Currently, I run two days to build up my endurance, but throughout my training, I will still maintain my normal Trikke routine.
TWM: What dietary regimes are you following?
LS: I admit it! I have a large appetite, but luckily, thanks to staying committed to the Trikke weekly, I can afford to eat the things I love. Breakfast is important to me because if I don’t start my day off right, I tend to overeat later. I usually like to include some type of whole grain cereal that’s high in fiber and low in sugar, with low fat milk or some oatmeal. I tend to snack on popcorn, fruit, low fat cheese, crackers or some type of nuts between meals.
It’s important I eat something small, like miniature bananas, before working out to fuel me during my ride. Lunch usually includes some type of sandwich or wrap piled with veggies, or soups or leftovers from the night before. I rarely eat out for lunch to save money and my waistline. I usually cook dinner 3-4 nights a week, and try to include fresh meat, some type of grain and veggies.
I like to chop and purée vegetables to include in my meals, as well. It’s important to me to eat the foods I love but in moderation. Even though I’m a dietitian, making myself aware of everything I put into my body is what keeps me in control.
TWM: How easy has it been to maintain your body by Trikke?
LS: I have worked super hard to get in the shape I am in and I absolutely love my body by Trikke! Honestly, it’s been easy maintaining my weight still with Trikke. Sticking with my normal Trikke routine weekly and eating the best I can daily is key. I’ve become stronger and leaner throughout the last year and look forward to pushing my self even more.
TWM: How does feel, having the most popular story ever on TrikkeWorld?
LS: I’m shocked that it’s still the most popular story, considering how many good stories have been posted throughout the past year. I really believe I had a lot of support from my friends and community and that got the story running. Hopefully I have inspired at least one person out there showing that staying committed to your Trikke can really transform your body.
