You say here “It’s not bad” - which means you must have used it. But you also say:

In English there is an idiom, “digging yourself in to a hole”. It refers to when you get stuck in a story or a lie or some sort of bad situation (a “hole”) and you keep talking trying to talk your way out of it, when you are actually making it worse for yourself.

I don’t know if it’s a common phrase, but a friend of mine says “dig up” as a joke, referring to this. It means: “you’re in a hole, keep talking/digging out of it” - obviously if you’re in a hole, keeping digging/talking doesn’t get you out, it just gets you deeper in to it! We all know what it means, we accept that we’ve made a mistake or similar, and we all have a laugh about how silly we were to think we could explain our way out of it. We would also *stop* trying to “dig” our way out of the hole.

So, to you I say: “dig up”. I won’t say anything more.
