I agree with HSHEAJ5 and BITTERQUIL and anyone else who said it... it's one day. When you're eating at a deficit the rest of the week, 1 day at a surplus isn't going to do much, if anything to your weight loss efforts. The best thing you can do is to forgive yourself, realize every single person experiences times of overeating so it's normal and move on, starting tomorrow as if it never even happened.
You *do not* want to get into the vicious cycle of binging and purging... so don't even start. I suddenly developed BED from perpetually under eating (didn't realize I was at the time until the binging started). I found myself binging and then purging to do damage control both with diet and exercise which only exasperated things. I've now concluded that the binge eating started (I've never been a binge eater in the past) because I wasn't eating enough for my activity level and my training.
Sometimes you need to listen to your body more.
Perhaps you didn't get enough calories during the week and your body is trying to make up it. I learned that I am exceptionally hungry every 4th-5th day while on a calorie deficit (this is usually when the binging would occur) especially after a few days of heavy training. Now I plan out to eat more calories every 4th and 5th day. I eat about 200-400 cals extra to beat my body to the punch. That way I ensure it's healthy things I eat, that *I* plan out... rather than having my hunger take the driver's wheel and dive into a pint of ice cream. It doesn't have to coincide with how much I exercise that day, I actually find the days I'm exceptionally active I don't have much of an appetite. It's on my rest day after a few heavy days I feel it, so that usually works out to when I up my calories. I do two days of high calories to ensure my body gets what it needs.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
