My girl, tell me where did you sleep last night?

My personal trainer at the gym amazes me. At Christmas she announced to me that the average person eats 7000 calories on Chrismas day, to which she continued "I am going to have 10000". This is a woman who is training for the Marathon, and is pure muscle.

Yesterday she informed me that a person eats 4 spiders a year, without realising, whilst they are sleeping. Then she asked me how many calories i thought to be in a spider.

She then went on to talk about my friend who is overweight, (and who refuses to worry about her body), saying "it is so refreshing to see a big woman happy to be fat".

So, because half of the time I am irrational and suspiciously convinced that everyone else too has an eating disorder, I am totally confused about this woman. I realise this is her job, and body image is in the forefront of her mind, but the way she talks makes me wonder upon her own issues. Maybe there arent any issues, i really don't know and it really isnt any of my business anyway.

Does anyone else have any experiences/thoughts on personal trainers/gym instructors and thier attitudes?
