We prayed Ishaa with only six brothers who came to the mosque. After finishing sunnah prayers, everybody was headed to exit the building. On the side of the corridor I noticed scales. “Hmm… let me just…” and I hopped on them.
When I looked at what the scales were showing me, I thought the scales must be broken. “Hal haathal meethaan saheeh? [Are these scales right?]” I asked a brother. He said “Na’am [Yes]”.
My weight was always the same for the past 3 years. However, since the beginning of the quarantine I apparently put on 4 more kilos of weight [4 weeks = 4 kilos].
I am not sure whether it is good news or bad news [maybe you can tell me whether it is good or bad]. My flatmate always says that I am skinny. I tell him “It is better to be skinny and healthy rather than obese”. But hey… I don’t consider myself skinny. As far as I am concerned, my weight is just right. [You’re supposed to smile here, because this was supposed to be a joke].
Maybe this is an issue that many people nowadays are having because of the quarantine and stay-at-home policy. We are not MOVING much. I don’t know about you, but being home whole days, I tend to eat more than usual too.
I was used to going to the gym 2–3 times a week before the quarantine. I hope this whole thing will be over soon and I will resume my exercises. Otherwise, I will get so fat that you won’t recognize me after we all go back to our normal lives 😉
