Decided to have a go at giving the car a touchless wash using just Snowfoam, no separate wash.
3 weeks since it’s last wash but the roads here actually haven’t been too filthy.
Also proof that the wing vents must do something on the 4 series, even if it is just accumulate road grime and salt crystals!
Used a bit of G101 diluted 5:1 in water to help out with the wheels. Rest of the car was just foamed, AutoBrite Magifoam diluted 4:1.

Let it dwell for about 7 minutes whilst I grabbed a coffee, then rinsed it off (and missed a bit on the rear bumper
Going for some tech talk briefly here, NEAT being “Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis.”
So what’s that when it’s at home? Well, basically it’s any and all energy used which isn’t through eating, sleeping and exercising.
This is really the crux of the “eat less, do more” school of thought for weight loss. The thing that makes it great is it’s really easy to do.
Take the stairs, not the lift or escalator. Walk to the shop instead of taking the car. Go to the toilet at the other end of the building, not the one just across from your office.
Sure, I’ve not been perfect, I’ve not hit my target steps every day. Check out the average though, 2,500 more steps a day so far this year compared to last year.
It’s simple changes like this that can make a real difference in your activity levels and overall weight.
One of the subjects we talk about a lot in coaching is smart goals, or rather SMARTER goals;
- Evaluate [once time limit reached]
- Record [Achieved? Further work required? Still relevant?]
The goal is where you are going, the actions provide the steps to get there. So January’s actions for me;
- Create/Find a workout plan for each body area ✅
- Create/Find a fat burn workout ✅
- Alternate between a body area workout and fat burn workout, cycling through all body areas, 1 workout per day, Sundays are rest days ✅
- Bookend workouts with interval training runs on the treadmill ✅
1 week in, 6 workouts down, 1 Sunday of rest. Weight loss is slightly ahead of target for my goal of losing 30lb in 12 weeks, but that’s good because it’ll get harder the further down the road I get!
