really rough night

Did a family event and there was more food than you can imagine. I ate tons of veggies and salsa and was fine until they brought out all the sushi, pasta, bread, cheese and you name it! I managed to stay in control for the most part, but ate hummus that I believe was NOT raw. Before I knew it, I was eating cheese. Crap.
Anyway, because I ate a ton of hummus and cheese, I will begin from scratch. I'll say I was 2 weeks raw and tomorrow I will start day 1 again. My 30 day challenge begins all over. Wonder how crappy I will feel in the morning??
I'm okay with my slip up. I have this strange feeling that I will slip now and again. What I am trying to believe is that if I beat myself up, I will head for a downward spiral. I just have to accept that I ate cooked and start fresh tomorrow. No guilt. New beginnings. Of course, deep down I want to cry as I was doing such a perfect job at being 100 % raw. I had this strange feeling I would crumble once I got close to my period. No more crumble. Tomorrow, it is back to raw.
I can do this. I really hope I can do this. What will it take to convince myself that eating cooked foods is not an option despite it being so tempting. I feel terrible on cooked foods.
Funny tonight: my sister-in-law said she did not buy the whole enzyme concept of raw food. She said she was going to research it as she felt it was a load of s***. She'll see. The articles online are pretty convincing.
Thanks for helping me guys and gals! You have really kept me motivated. I shall get back on the raw foods tomorrow.
