You do this in your head: a, burn, jogging, a mile
That’s it. But the mental formula can become much more complicated if you want to add more muscle mass to your body.


For example, let’s say that you want to add 12 pounds to your current body weight. You start with a pound of muscle that you are 100% sure is yours in your mind’s eye. Let’s say that this pound of muscle is your right thigh. Your second mental equation becomes (6) A, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile.


Now in your mind, let’s say that you want to add 12 more pounds of muscle. In your mind’s eye, add that 4 pounds of muscle that you are 100% sure is yours and the 4 pounds of muscle that you are 100% sure is not yours. Add the 4 pounds of muscle that you have no idea if it’s yours or not. This is your third mental formula: (9) A, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile
Finally, let’s say that you want to lose 5 pounds of fat. You can do this mental math in your head too. Let’s say you want to lose 5 pounds of fat that are 100% of the person’s total weight that you are 100% sure is your right thigh. Your third mental formula becomes (3) A, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile.


So the mental formula is:
(6) A, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile (7) A, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile (2) A, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile (1) A, how many calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile
You do this in your head like this: I, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile.


If I wanted to lose 7 pounds of fat, I’d do this mental math in my head like this: I, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile
The physical formula is:
5, how many, calories, I, burn, jogging, a mile
Mental math is done with your mind. You do this math and this physical math mentally in your head. But how often do you really do this? What I’ve noticed in the past is that people are more likely to exercise when they have a physical goal
