‘I’ll burn off this cookie later.’ Here’s why it’s time to ditch that mentality…

It’s time to stop working out just to burn off treats.

You’ve heard it before, or even said it before – “I workout so I can eat this.”

However, it’s time to leave those thoughts behind. Emily says that women need to start seeing food and fitness as two separate entities.
