I agree with mkroyer (based on what has worked for me, ONLY). I know nothing in terms of being a trainer/teacher/professional. I can only tell you what worked for me, and hey, it might work for you.

I also think you are overtraining. Several times throughout the year that it took me to lose my weight, I took a break from exercising. Took a week off and didn't do any "structured" exercise. No running, weightlifting, cross training, bike riding, NOTHING. I would have never believed it either, until I tried it, but every single time I took a break, I lost significant weight in that week. Like 5 lbs., compared to crawling along at .5 lbs a week prior to that. Then, in the following week, when you return to exercising, set out on a new plan. It has to be something you can execute for a lifetime, so keep that in mind. Best wishes!!
