I work for 1.5 hours a day and go 5 times a week, and I ride my bike to the gym and back home which is 1.5 miles away so its 15-20 minute ride

I usually eat 800-1200 calories a day

With the amount you exercise 800-1200 calories is not enough...up your protein. You should be between 1200-1400 maybe more some days. Up your water also.
