Lifestyle balance is just like just like balancing on one leg - you have to constantly make small adjustments to compensate for a shift in the balance. These adjustments are not the correcting of mistakes, rather they are needed in order to keep balancing and not fall over!
You don't have to be perfect on any given day/week/month. If you went over your calorie range today, just know that you should stay in the low end tomorrow. If you missed a workout on your birthday, then do an extra one next week. It's all about achieving that balance so you don't fall down!

To get back on track, just stop beating yourself up on how far off track you got. Start with one step in the right direction, like a healthy meal or 10 minutes of exercise and build on from there. Think of each day as a brand new day and keep going! Strive for progress not perfection! And be kind to yourself!
