My 30 Day Challenge

It was almost 1.5 years ago that I wrote this post on being married for 5 years.  What made me think of it?  Well, I had a bunch of girls over a couple of weeks ago, and we were talking about how long everyone was married….when it came around to my turn, all the ladies that have been married for longer said, "about 7 years.  Have you felt the itch?"

I'm going to be honest here.  I haven't felt an itch.  Or a twitch.  Or a tickle.  I haven't felt much of anything these days.  Literally or figuratively.  We kiss goodbye every morning, and sometimes kiss hello at the end of the day.  That's it.  Even in bed, we just sleep next to each other, without much affection.  And so, the 30 Day challenge has become my mission.  I've broken my own rules (Numbers 1 and 5 from the marriage post), and  I truly believe sex plays a HUGE role in happy marriages.  Lack of it, even when coupled with excellent communication, can make for two very unhappy people.

 

30 Day Challenge

I asked myself how MrMuffinTop and I got to such a dry spell.  My girlfriend answered me perfectly, even though she was answering a different question.  She said "Shit, you've had a hell of a year.  First your mom died right before you gave birth, your oldest switched schools, the baby was always sick and now you have a hemorrhaging ruptured cyst on your ovary!"  The last one brings an imbalance of hormones, so I have an extra excuse.  But no more excuses or get out of jail free cards!  Tomorrow, Saturday August 23rd 2014, I, MrsMuffinTop, am going to embark on the 30 Day Sex Challenge.  Every single day, for 30 days, I will be intimate with my husband.  No matter what.  No "I'm tired" or "I'm feeling sick" or "I didn't shave my legs for a week now" justifications.  Sex.  Every day.  Thirty Days.  And I'm going to document every day of it.  No, sillies, I'm not going to post pictures of videos of us in the heat of passion, but I'll be telling you everything about how I'm feeling, how I stay motivated, and how it's changing or evolving my marriage.

What do you think?  Any tips?  Pointers?
