Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by to read my page and hopefully supporting this fundraising effort.  Here's a little about me and why I am undertaking the 10k "Courage" Royal Marine Commando Challenge ....

My name is Amy and I am a full time PA and part time photographer.  I lead quite a hectic lifestyle in terms of the things that I am involved in, and don't have much time to look after me!  In June I will turn 40 ... a milestone I am a little afraid of reaching, if I am honest.  I have never been one for keeping fit or maintaining any constant level of fitness or exercise routine - I love my chocolate, pizza, lasgane, biscuits, cake and wine ... but after friends of mine planted the seed about this challenge (after a few glasses of wine, I may add) I thought "why not" and here I am.

For me, this is probably going to be the biggest challenge I have ever faced; it's more than just the physical challenge, this is going to test me on every level; my motivation, commitment, staying the course ... I know that when it starts to hurt (and it will) I am going to have to dig deep and just plow through it.  I know that to stand any chance of doing this event, and to complete it in a respectable time, I am going to need to "beast myself" - get a grip of all my bad eating habits, make my pizza and wine nights in front of the TV a treat rather than the norm and make the commitment to hit the gym.  I need to start from scratch - lose weight (a lot of it) and get fit - and I have 10months in which to do it.

This is a great event which supports two amazing charities; the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the Royal Marines Charity, and I am really proud to be fundraising for them. 

I have been warmly welcomed into the "RMCC 2018 event" family by Sarah and the Marketing Team at DAAT and will be making regular blogs on the RMCC website ( as well as here to record my progress and to let you all know how the weight loss campaign and training is going.  So, if you think I am totally crazy (and you wont be alone in that) and for no other reason than this, would like to sponsor me, I would be so grateful.

To see what I have signed up for please take a look at the course on the RMCC website -
