I expect my husband to wash my car before I go to work

Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially in the era of breadwinner wives.

Women are far out earning their men, proving to be a problem in some relationships.

Yes, men and women react to money differently. Yes, they have different scripts. And yes, I think it’s important to talk about it, instead of pretending money is the same for everybody.

So what happens to the social norms when a woman earns more than her man?

A woman who bragged that she earns half a million shillings a month, narrated how she lives life happily with her jobless husband.

She spoke on the Maina and Kingangi show

I work earning half a million a month, he is jobless and wakes up to wash my car, and I expect to find house chores done when I come back home from work

She added

We have been together for three years and I provide everything without complaining, He does house chores and it makes me happy, even when we go out I pay the bills without complaining, and he is ok with that and I respect him, he has never cheated on me and neither have I. I am a happy woman maina

Dear Classic fam, I want to hear your stories. If you earn more than your partner, does it affect your relationship? How does gender play a role in your finances?

Fitbits do not lead to weight loss – study

Don’t bother investing in an Apple Watch if it’s just to lose weight, according to new research.

Tracking your steps, blood pressure and cholesterol might motivate you, and give you an insight into your general wellbeing.

But researchers at the University of Florida found FitBits and other fitness wearables rarely lead to actual weight loss.

In an analysis of six studies on 1,615 people, the team found no users had any meaningful drop in cholesterol or blood pressure, and only one cohort recorded weight loss.

‘The weight loss findings are pretty surprising,’ Dr Jo, assistant professor in the school of Health Services Research, told TODAY.

‘I thought that wearable devices would definitely help to lose weight, at some point, because they make people move, but apparently not.’

‘They can motivate people to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, but that does not change people’s lifestyle to be [adequately] active,’ she added.

The findings come just weeks after another study called into question the famous 10,000-steps-a-day goal.

7 Things you do that negatively affect your life

To be a successful person in life you need to be a realistic and hardworking person to achieve your dreams. However there are some things that people do that are killing them slowly without knowing.

Tokeo la picha la stress

They include;

Being unrealistic

You should set goals that are realistic or easy to attain. Do not expect to buy a car the next morning without having a job. Once you set such goals and you fail to attain them, you will end up blaming yourself or even people surrounding you.

Taking things for granted

When you assume that anything can happen anytime, you will never be productive. Always be positive minded and expect the best of results. When you think of the worst, you will end up losing hope in life.

Judging people

Avoid being judgmental at all costs. When you develop the act of judging yourself and friends, it means it means you have negative qualities in yourself and others. You will never gain anything in life if you do not have faith in yourself.

Pride

Proud people never take correction positively because they always think they are right. When you are proud, you will be having no one to guide you, killing yourself productive wise.

Confidence

When you don’t have confidence in yourself, no one will have one in you. You have to prove that you are capable of doing it so as people have faith in you.

Complaining about everything

When you complain often, it could indicate you are sad. This means that your mind is filled with negativity as you will always be opposing on anything.

Being bossy

An Instagram influencer’s hair falls out during a livestream beauty tutorial 

 

A teenager was left devastated after her hair started to fall out in clumps as she attempted to relax her locks while filming the process for a livestream beauty tutorial.

Vlogger Lori Faith, 18, from New York, opened up the horrifying experience in a new YouTube video in which she revealed that she had been left completely bald after attempting to chemically relax her own hair at home, while admitting that she was ‘stupid’ for taking such a risk with such a risky procedure.

‘I did something stupid and impulsive because I thought I knew what I was doing but I actually didn’t,’ she stated in the video. 

Lori showed followers how she often dyes her hair a rainbow of colors depending on what she is feeling or her mood.

D-Y_a7LXYAASBZY

In the last three years, her hair has been dyed a rainbow of hues, including yellow, pink and blue.

So it was no surprise when the YouTuber confessed her hair was already damaged from the different chemicals she has used on her locks over the years.

But Lori’s hair took a turn for the worst after she attempted to bleach it last week in order to get rid it of the pink dye that was in it at the time, a process that she also filmed for viewers.

When that attempt to change up her hair color didn’t work, Lori decided to add blue dye into her hair to fix the color, before attempting to chemically relax her locks at home in order to make them look straighter.

She decided to livestream the attempt on her Instagram so other followers would get to see how the process is completed — that was then that disaster struck.

After admitting that she hadn’t had her hair relaxed since ‘she was a kid’, Lori went on to confess that she was ‘f***ing scared’ about the prospect of doing it herself at home, while noting that the chemicals used in the process ‘sting’.  

Lori then started to mix together two formulas that are thought to be both a bleach and a relaxer, thought to be the ORS Olive Oil No-Lye Normal Hair Relaxer, an at-home formula that is intended for use on coarse and resistant hair textures.

The product also states that it contains ‘the nourishing benefits of olive oil’ and does not contain sodium hydroxide (lye), which can be incredibly harmful to the hair.

However, Lori’s decision to apparently combine the product with bleach is likely what caused her hair to begin falling out so quickly; bleach and relaxer both contain chemicals that weaken the hair shaft when used.

Health: Being over weight as an adolescent could lead to heart problems

Being mildly overweight as a teenager raises the risk of heart failure in adulthood, scientists have found.

Scientists tracked 1.6million men for nearly five decades to examine the dangers of carrying extra weight in adolescence.

They found those who were even mildly overweight when they were 18 were more likely to develop cardiomyopathy in later life.

The findings come amid a worldwide childhood obesity crisis, with figures showing there are 340 million youngsters who are overweight or obese.

Obesity is known to be a risk factor for a multitude of health problems including heart disease.

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg were looking mainly to see if teenage obesity raised the risk of cardiomyopathy.

It is the general term for diseases of the heart muscle, which can make it harder for the organ to pump blood around the body.

Men who enlisted in compulsory military service between 1969 and 2005, when they were 18 or 19 years old, were analysed.

Researchers recorded figures on their height, weight and overall fitness.

Among the men in the study, 4,477 were diagnosed with cardiomyopathy at an average age of 45.5.

The men who at age 18 had a body mass index (BMI) below 20 had a low risk of going on to develop cardiomyopathy.

But the risk steadily increased as weight increased, according to the findings that were published in the journal Circulation.

Men who had a BMI of 35 and over – considered obese – were eight times more likely to develop dilated cardiomyopathy as adults.

Worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975, according to the World Health Organization.

Health chiefs have long been trying to crack down on childhood obesity rates, considering children who are obese are put at a higher risk of heart conditions and diabetes at a younger age than normal.

Obese youngsters are likely to stay obese into adulthood, where long-term health problems include cancer
