Everyone has days like that...just get back on track as quickly as possible and don't let yourself feel too guilty about it! Changing old, ingrained habits is hard work and you can't expect yourself to be perfect.
I was also a serious binge eater, especially at night, so I have a few suggestions that have worked for me. First, find something else to do when you feel like eating in the evenings. For me, a nice hot shower is a huge help because afterwards I just want to lay down with a book or some quite music and relax. Maybe this will work for you, or maybe you have something else that makes more sense, but keeping myself busy with something else (cleaning is also useful for me!) tends to make those snacking urges subside after awhile. Second, try drinking a big glass of water or some tea. At the very least you'll probably feel fuller more quickly, even if you do snack.
The other thing I just figured out this week is that I have been working much harder and burning way more calories than the SP tracker was counting. I bought myself a heart rate monitor and found that I was burning as much as 150 calories more in a workout than the generalized SP tracker was counting! And it finally made sense why I was so hungry (and often eating outside my range) a few days a week. If you are doing some serious cardio work and plan on continuing with it, I would highly recommend thinking about picking one up to make sure your body is getting the right amount of calories. It has made all the difference for me the last few days.
Best to you on your journey!
