Over the last few weeks I have been struggling to get rid of a bad cough.

And so it begins.


As alluded to previously, I had a good Christmas. Knowing that in the New Year I was going to deprive myself of a lot of bad stuff for a while; I over indulged. I have no problem with that. That said I did get a little shock when I weighed myself on New Years Day. […]
