Scuba class with a side of reality check, please

I have recently come to the realization that I have gained a few pounds and that I'm not really as active as I would like to be. So in an effort to rectify this situation my roommate and I have started jogging, I'm still trying to figure out yoga, and after today's SCUBA lab, I have now added that to the exercise list.

For the past two nights my roommate and I have went walking/ jogging so I am already sore. We had decided that today would be our "rest" day but that was soon to change for me. So I go to the pool for the two hour lab session today and we find out we have to swim 25 yards underwater and 200 yards above water. So I think to myself, "Okay, I can do this. It won't be that hard." WRONG. If you're wondering if you too are out of shape, go jump in a pool and try to swim 200 yards non-stop. I can promise you it won't be pretty. First embarrassing moment came when I realize every other girl in the lab was extremely skinny and mostly in string bikinis (this makes one piece and tankinis stand out by the way) with their boobs hanging all out while all of the guys were practically drooling at them. So I finally finish all of my swimming (torture) and lose one contact, I need to get out of the pool and stand at the side while everyone else finishes. This is where I promptly make a fool out of myself and realize that I am so tired and worn out I can't lift myself out of the pool. So what do I do? Oh, well this idiot grabs the handrail on the instructors' walkway and roll myself onto the platform. I know I had to look like a beached whale trying to break free. I then try to compose myself and walk away hoping that the 50+ people in there didn't realize what just took place. Even if they did I wouldn't be able to see it considering I only had one contact. After that, things went smoothly for the most part and I can't wait until next week.

I am tired, sore, and hungry with a headache so I will now take my leave.
