Welcome to ask.fedora! Now that you've got things working again, you might want to set a real root password in case something like this ever comes up again. Open a terminal and run this:

sudo passwd root

Enter your password as you normally would. Then, passwd will prompt you for a new password for root, and ask you to confirm it. Now, if for any reason you can't log in as yourself, you can always switch to a CLI console, lot in as root and do what's needed to get things working again.
