A fluctuation of 1.5 pounds is just normal (I can fluctuate 3-4 pounds) depending on water and waste retention. Have you increased your water intake with your increase in exercise. Your body will actually retain water if it thinks it isn't getting enough. Drinking more water will allow your body to not retain as much.

Have you adjusted your eating to your new workouts? If the deficit between what you eat and what you burn is too great then your body may slow your metabolism and make it harder to lose. I would be inclined to think that your gain is just a normal fluctuation though.
