You don't need to hit the same target daily--instead aim for a 7-day average to accommodate fluctuations in appetite and schedule.
Viewing exercise a lifelong tug of war against calories is no way to live! Good exercise should be either (a) pleasant/invigorating or (b) conditioning, i.e. doing something at least one notch faster/longer/heavier than last time. The middle un-sweet spot of routine exertion is discouraged by PB.
