Locked out of my Win 7 administrator account!

Specs: Windows 7

I locked myself out of my administrator account like an idiot. I went into group policy controls and told them if I was to enter the wrong password 5 times to lock me out for 2 days >.< I really need my computer right now because I am a student in college for IT. I tried to log into a standard user account and couldn't figure it out so I went back to my Administrator and it told me it was locked. Is there any way I can use the standard user account to access my administrator or get administrator privileges for any amount of time? Any good administrator hacks are welcome I just wanna get into my computer. Thanks for any help.

Boot into safe mode and try logging into the standard Administrator account. Unless you have disabled it in your local security policy settings for user accounts, or your using it now, and just changed the user name. If so, you'll probably need a good hack.
