The most of weight loss actually comes from your nutrition, so it would be helpful for your weight loss efforts if you did your best to stay within your calorie range. If you are going over your range, then you are likely working against your efforts. Is it possible that you are being too strict with your eating in general? It sounds like you are starting out your day doing great and sticking to your plan, but something happens later in the day. Take a look at what is happening there, whether it's due to being to strict with your eating or maybe you are working out too much/too hard in comparison to your general intake.
This is about making changes that you can sustain for life, so make sure that what you are doing is reasonable and something you can do for the rest of your life. If you are exercising hard every day, you may want to ask yourself if that is something you can see yourself doing forever. Often times it isn't and it's easy to quickly get burned out, and we don't want you to do that. We want you to succeed and find what works best for you that you will be able to continue doing.
I would also recommend reviewing these articles for fueling your body before and after workouts (it is possible that you may need to change some of what you are eating either before and/or after your workouts):
