Should I use the calories that I earn from exercise to eat m

I have only been watching my calories and not really exercising, and have lost weight. Today I did get off my rump and exercise and I put it in my diary. Before I exercised, I had 147 calories left to eat for the day. After I exercised, it added on the 190 calories I burned. The question is, do I eat the extra 190 calories? I'd like to think that I shouldn't to get the extra weight loss benefit, but part of me says eat it because I earned it. There may also be a third possibility for why I should use the calories on food, but I just can't think of it now. What are your thoughts???????
