Okay, yesterday - May 13, 2018 - was not only Mother's Day but my father's birthday as well. To celebrate, we went and ate out at Olive Garden. The problem was, though I had eaten before we went, I still ended up eating a lot of food. My total Cal. Amount that day was about 5000 Calories. So yeah, I really fell off my diet yesterday. :bigcry:

So today, I am picking myself up and trying to get myself back on track. Other than watch my portion control next time, are there any good tips and advice that I can get so I don't end up eating so many calories and then spending the rest of the week trying to burn all of it off?

I usually try to eat less the next day, but I don't know if that's safe or not. Today's total calorie in-take - as of right now - is 1260 Calories.

Well, portion control is important, but what you ate is also important too. If you were focusing on mainly soup and some salad, you're not that bad. But some of the meals (if you had 5k calories, I'm guessing one of the bigger meals) are overloaded in carbs and everything else.
I'm pretty sure Olive Garden has some menu options that are "low calorie" (for them, anyway). Usually has some sort of icon on it. Maybe pick from them the next go-round.

Appetizers. Some of them are big enough to be a light meal.
