The body doesn't cut off its metabolic processes dealing with food when we analyze our food for the day, and then start again for the next day. It is a rolling process that takes days.
I don't feel guilty, and I don't deprive myself the next day. I just get back on the wagon. If I go over calories, usually it's only by a little bit. I got a little too much fat yesterday, but oh well, I'm good every day.
It's a lifestyle. The byproduct of our healthy lifestyle is weight loss, that's how I try to see it. It's an effort to see it that way, especially when I only lose a little every week and get so frustrated!

I'm 5'4 and wear a 6/8
Main Goal- Beat 5k time from 1995- 21:00!
For every pound, I'm giving myself $10. When I maintain, for every week, I'm giving myself $10. Eventually, I'll have the money for a HRM/GPS device for running!
I go over my targets every once in a while because things like parties, outings, etc. happen. I acknowledge it and get back on track the next day. One week I exceeded my exercise target and the tracker indicated that I might need to increase my calorie target for the extra exercise, so knowing that, I didn't feel as guilty!

Depending on what you ate that put you over your range, and how much you went over, don't beat yourself up over it. Make tomorrow/today(the next day) a little bit lower calorie if you need to, but it's just one day out of your life. Make sure it doesn't become a habit, and be proud of yourself for catching a yellow flag before it became a red one.
Get healthy and stay that way!
I would like to start training to walk 5K again, try to get my time under 62 minutes this time.
I am 5 feet 5 inches tall.

Same here. I usually do feel guilty, but then say that tomorrow is another day. Just remember to list to your body...sometimes I need a little extra to keep going...

Yep, I certainly DO feel guilty when I exceed my calories!
I just eat fewer calories the next day (but then I'm told I'm below my calorie range and I get all guilty again....)

So today is the first day I did not do well with my nutritional targets. I was over on my calories and fat. I am beating myself up over it. But I burned off over 500 calories today in the gym. Now, we are told to ensure we get enough calories to have extra to burn off, but there is no where in any of the nutritional tracking that lets us off set our food to our burn off. Thinking back, I know I did alright, but on paper, it doesn't look good. Am I the only one?
