I don't think you blew it either. Ya, maybe you overate. Ya, maybe you ate something that was not so healthy. So be it. You jumped right back on your plan and worked out. This journey is a give and take. If you indulge one day you work out a little harder and watch your calorie intake a little more closely over the next couple of days and you will have lost no ground. You cannot deprive youself all the time as it can lead to a major binge or in just giving up. It's all about moderation. As long as you are not eating that gyro and fries every day or every week you will be fine.

I agree with Jennifer - We live and learn in everything we do. I have issues with portion control and really have to work hard on avoiding my trigger foods that cause me to overeat and feel miserably stuffed afterwards.
No one is perfect and we all have moments of temptation and weakness - we are human!!!
Holly/Texas. Time Zone: CST; Don't do anything today you can't maintain for the rest of your life; Studies show a mere 11 minutes of weight training 3 times a week is enough to reduce your body fat and raise your metabolism.
I don't think you blew it - I think what you have in this is a 'take away' lesson. You said you felt miserably full after you ate. Keep that memory at the forefront of your mind the next time you are thinking about eating that much food. It makes it much easier to enjoy a bit of the foods you love without going overboard because your mind is switched on to "I don't want to feel that way again". I have found that by moving my thoughts away from dieting, losing weight, blowing it, etc. towards focusing on how I feel when I eat certain foods and certain quantities of food it helps me.
Inflamagic.com I use this for pain of all kinds; muscle, joint, strains, really any kind of inflammation. Works fast and is all natural.
MenopauseMagic.com A fantastic menopause relief product that is natural and relieves menopause symptoms within a few weeks versus the eight to twelve weeks for other therapies.
We all have days we think we blew it! but as long as you get back on track as soon as possible then you can still have a good week. Also you may want to ask your husband to bring a salad next time rather than fries.
Dont beat yourself up, remember the importance of "positive self talk". Just a suggestion, I had a veggie gyro for dinner Sunday, I ordered the smallest size (the deli I was at has various sizes) and I ate 1/2 for dinner and the other 1/2 the next day for lunch. I got the satisfaction of having dinner out with my kids, got my veggies in and was satisfied.
