Through Google Account Recovery you can recover your password by providing a range of details (such as account creation date, frequent contacts, label names, etc.). I've done it several times and out of 4 times it worked twice (the other times I didn't know enough information). The last time was about a month ago so likely the system didn't change since then.

Work your way through the first or third option, it should be somewhere in there.

All you have to do is remember your SIM card number, Google will ask you for it.
