    I need to go and work off a few of these calories.

    What does "go" mean here?

    Why do you think it means anything other than the usual definition of "go"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Did you mean it meant "leave the current place and go somewhere in order to do some excercise"? For example, go running and walking.

    Thank you Matthew. I really enjoy it when someone introduces some links. I find it really helpful and this is a great way to learn English for me.
