Had one of my worst days ever on Saturday...lost like $380. I'm pretty sure I know what caused it, and its not even poker related. But...I'm over it now, and the last 2 days I've made like half of that back, so moving onward and upward.
Very rarely do I play above $55, but that day, I played a $110 which I game selected. I lost on a suckout...here's the HH.

Obv 99 is a strong hand, but it becomes a diffcult hand to play post flop if
over cards hit the board which is a likely scenario. Since he was 4xing pre, I
was getting 80 free chips if he folded, so I snap decided to ship it. I was happy
as hell for a second when i saw the 77 hand, but alas....I was pwn'd.
Grinded a buttload of $11's today to work on 2 tabling. I'm still not real
comfortable with it....I can do it, but it makes playing more like work, and I
definitely make a few more small mistakes which I hate. Just need to keep working on it I suppose.
Still on track for a $1000+ month. Really need to focus on volume, volume, volume.
