The thing to remember is that those calories are the same calories that you eat other days. They are not 'weaker' calories or 'easier to forget' calories. Good thing to do is take the 3000 extra calories you had on that one day and spread them out over the next few weeks. Say you normally eat within a 2000 calorie limit... subtract 500 calories so that every day, you eat 1500 calories instead, for six days (6x500=3000); do you feel that is easy and you are comfortable with that? If so, then you have put that one day of indulgence into perspective. If it's really difficult to do that, then appreciate the impact of that one day.
