Feelin’ The Jitters

I am literally up to my ears in work right now! 😯

It’s always a little extremely hectic the night before the first day of school with students…I swear I get the jitters worse as a teacher than I did as a student. Such conditions definitely called for a quick and easy dinner.


I heated up some leftovers from my Roasted Veggie Casserole. There’s still at least two more servings left…easily. 🙂


I also cooked up a MorningStar Farms veggie burger, crumbled it up, and mixed it with some lettuce, tomato, red onion, and honey mustard…


…and tossed it into a Joseph’s Sandwich Size Whole Wheat Pita Bread. LOVE these things! 



I was really in need of a workout today. Not only because it’s been two full days since I’ve had one, but I also needed it to help relax my mind. (Which has been running at 110% since yesterday!) I was originally planning on hitting up the gym after work, but decided I wanted something a little more relaxing. I headed home and did two of my favorite workout videos from Exercise on Demand: 10lb Slimdown CORE & 10lb. Slimdown YOGA. They both really did the trick – I felt like a brand new person afterwards! 😀

Time to get back to this work…my stomach already has butterflies! GAH! 😯

Question for the Night:

Did/do you ever get nervous before starting up school again every year?

  7. I always get a tad nervous…and I’ve been in school 16 years!! Good luck, darling : )

    My only two years out of college have been spent out here so I feel a bit disconnected from the whole back to school thing, but I am already excited/anxious about starting grad school NEXT year! i miss being a student.
