You need to be eating a lot more calories if you're working out that much. Make sure you've entered the amount you burn weekly manually into your fitness setup to ensure you're eating enough. Like others have said the lowest a woman should eat is 1200 cals and that's more likely if you're petite and if you lead a sedentary lifestyle (which you obviously don't!). I eat around 1350-1400 cals, I never go below 1300 cal, I don't do near as much cardio as you and I'm 5'2 120 lbs. Eating too little can be just as detrimental to weight loss as eating too much.
I would also recommend trading in some of that cardio for strength training days. Strength training is just as important as cardio because when you lose weight, not only do you lose fat but lean muscle. You will look leaner (smaller) for your weight. It also has the added benefit of boosting your metabolism and multiple health benefits; prevents injury, stronger bones, stronger muscles, lowers risk for diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis.
Remember, you will have to burn an extra 150-200 cals per day once you are maintaining your weight and you will have to keep this up for the rest of your life if you want to maintain you're new weight. If you can't see yourself exercising this intensely for the rest of your life, you're over doing it. Diet is 80% of weight loss, don't kill yourself with cardio.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
All that matters is that you be the healthiest you, you ca
