Are you saying that you improperly designated the application as a CIP or that you accidentally added subject matter to the application that does not get the priority date?
 
In either case, it is not clear that your mistake has any negative consequences.
 
In the former case, your mistake would seem to be of no consequence whatsoever.   If all of your claims are eligible for the priority of the parent application, then with respect to those claims, your application is not distinguishable in any way from a continuation.
 
In the latter case, you should still be able to pursue subject matter supported by the parent application if that's what you want to do, but you can also pursue claims drawn to the added subject matter.
 
Perhaps I'm missing something...
