slimmer now - after working out in the gym. exhausted. tired. but refreshed.
I am working out in the gym 4x times a week and after every workout, I take a bath. My friend told me that it's ok and it won't affect my health. However, I am having cough and colds for three weeks now and I guess it has something to do with my after-gym habit. Medications won't effect at all. I need advice.
