Fixing botched month of BCP

Hello, Everyone.

I just had a quick question about fixing the timing of my birth control. I take Alesse28 for the record.

Here's the sitch. I normally take my pill 11am everyday. I just finished up my sugar pill week and was supposed to start my new pack on Sunday 11am. Due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, I was unable to start on time. The first time I was able to take a pill was Tuesday evening. Now, I know that my protection is compromised until I have taken seven active pills, that's not a problem, and my boyfriend and I are using backup. I took two pills on Tuesday, and have been taking one a day since, and I'm thinking that in order to maintain my protection further on I just need to keep taking them once a day till the end of the pack and then if I wanted to keep my cycle the same I could just start the new one on the Sunday instead of waiting until the Tuesday start its moved to.

Does this make sense?

Is there a better way to do this. Basically I'm concerned with keeping a Sunday start day, and maintaining protection with this pack of pills going forward, and I'm thinking if I stop with the one extra pill left over then I won't have taken the full 21 days worth and will lose that months protection.

Any help you guys can give me, I would really appreciate.
