I find it easiest to just base it on my deficit needs on a sedentary day, then eat my exercise calories back. That way the math is easier and if I don't work out I dont worry about going over.
Like on a day I dont work out, I eat my base 1300, on a day I do work out I just add however many calories I burned to the 1300 and eat than many.

I don;t have an active job but I do exercise 5x a week normally about an hour a day. It's not unusal for me to throw in a hike a few times a month for a couple hours too.
So many I should aim for 1000 calories and I guess eat my exercise calories JIC?
I just feel like 1000cal is fine but when I workout (which is most days) it's not enough and I am wiped out.
Thank you for the help and advice!
Reread after I answered. We're saying the same thing I think lol. Set a minimum you always eat (like 1000) no matter what, if you work out, eat those extra calories.
Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.
