Whenever you feel like wasting a bit of time just because you want to chill out just lie down and google “workout memes” and you will certainly have a silly smile on your face that people will look at and say; dimaagh chal gaya hai kia? Because they truly don’t understand your reasons for smiling and they won’t if they are not part of the fitness community because those memes will only be relatable to you. So, from Nutright we give a few more relatable things that only you would get if you are part of the fitness community.
Drinking Green Tea Instead Of Chai
Our awaam loves to drink tea, so much so that there isn’t much difference left in the color of chai and color of our bateesi but for people who workout, a cup of chai is replaced by a cup of green tea. When everyone in the house is drinking chai, we go and make a cup of sabz chai for ourselves and when we are at someone’s place and the chai session is announced asking ‘chai kon kon le ga?’ And we in all our modesty be like ‘nai nai auntie hum chai nai lete’ and they turn to your mom shocked asking ‘Bhabi bache chai nai pite?’ Like really, woman? It’s a life choice and not a very tasty one.
When The Internet Connection Goes Off
Many people use the internet to find the best workouts for themselves and follow trainers to help them through their journey so basically the entire fitness program especially workouts depend on the Wi-Fi connection. You’re jumping up and down in your room trying to keep up with your mobile trainer and bam! Load shedding is back in town. This kills us like literally, we die from head to toe, we curse other people, we curse ourselves in various languages and sit there in despair thinking: so, what now?
Deciding Whether To Shampoo Or Just Shower
A workout is no fun or of any use until you’re sweating and dying on the ground. But with this fun comes a very difficult situation; when you are in the shower wondering whether to shampoo or not. Now this situation seems simple, but only to those who don’t workout. The scenario is like this: You’re standing in your bathroom staring at two bottles; one shampoo and one body wash and you think to yourself: should I shampoo or not, because you just shampooed in the morning or maybe the night before and you’ll damage your hair if you shampoo so much but if don’t shampoo you will stink and your hair will be oily by morning and probably flaky as well. So the smart choice? Screw this. Subah dekhte hain.
Realizing The Rip In Your Clothing
We all occasionally find a tear in our clothing whether that be our shirt, shalwar, pajama, dupatta or jaraab, it happens. But most of these tears go unnoticed until our Amma yells at us after finding a hole in our clothing but for those who workout, the yelling part does happen but most of the times we hear the tear ourselves. The thing is, we Pakistanis don’t really respect the concept of “gym wear” or “exercise jammies” and we simply put on a show with our posida clothes like tights and even shalwars at times or shorts and while doing that squat we rip right through. Oh, and that moment when we can see our thumb through our sock while doing a push-up. Priceless.
