TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2012.
BREAKFAST: Switched in ham for bacon today, because Tuesday is the one day of the week I push the 2710 "limit". The usual omelet in olive oil with it, 612 cals.
LUNCH: Ate out today at the cardroom (LOTS of bad players in tonight's $45 go-round, as thousands came out for the fireworks show; I flopped bottom two pair early on a AT9r flop, and had to overcall a super-over-sized all-in and call, because there were so many hands these two idiots could have pushed with there that I had crushed, but alas, one had A9 to take the main, the other had A7 and rivered me out of the sidepot and out of the tourney) can't put a specific calorie count to it, but it was two grilled chicken breasts (I'm guessing 11 oz, but it might've been less), grilled mushrooms and onions, and big helping of white rice. The rice and chicken come close to 900 cals in the MyFitPal app, but I'm sure the veggies were fried in some sort of oil. Let's not quibble and call it 900 cals.
SNACK: 4 Miller Lites, 12 oz bottles, 384 cals.
Also sang The Firm's "Satisfaction Guaranteed"
for the first time, I love singing that song, especially the last verse (2:24). Funny, the video shows a bunch of people sweating their ass off in a bar, that was precisely my experience tonight, as the joint was packed tonight, not the mostly-empty Tuesday crowd I'm used to--no air conditioner can keep up with that many people in a small bar on a 90 degree night! I bailed early, good thing, kept my beer count down.
DINNER: Passed on cooking, let Taco Bell do it for me (who else is going to after midnight in a small town?). Got a sampling of the low-cal "Fresco" menu: two tacos, two burritos--a steak and chicken version of each. They screwed up and dropped an extra chicken taco in the bag, so I ate it. 1140 Cals.
TOTAL: 3025, not a good day. But not a calamity in the face of the stellar week I've had so far. I'm quite confident there will be no more slip ups--at least, until next Tuesday.

That way your success or failure in your mind will come from adherence to your plan rather than the random fluctuations carbs and fluid produce.
I'm a +EV gambler, I have long ago divorced myself from short term results.
