I can't help but wonder if your not asking a more important question, which is whether you made good decisions. If you do that consistently, profit will come. What's more, you can control your decision-making, which influences but does not directly correlate with profit or loss on a given hand.
Hand 1 looks like a fold pre-flop. Even assuming the button has a fairly wide range, you have only middle suited connectors, you'll be OOP, and although it doesn't happen, it'll be a two-way pot most of the time. Another consideration is that you're calling .09 vs an opener who has 1.43 behind. Not horrid implied odds, but not all that juicy either.
If you want to reduce his stealing, raising is preferable to calling in the hope of out-flopping him because you'll only hit the flop a minority of the time, and most of those times, you still won't have that much of a hand.
On hand 2, when you raise limpers, a decent rule of thumb is 3x plus 1BB per limper. In this case, that would be .16 instead of .08. What is the min-raise supposed to accomplish? It's basically never right for the limper to fold, plus the smaller amount gives the blinds better pot and implied odds to call, which reduces your chances of isolating, albeit you're likely to have position. .
I prefer calling to the min-raise. The former would be in hope of getting an inexpensive opportunity to set mine. Note that by not inflating the pot, you retain higher implied odds.
As for betting small so as not to scare people off, thinking this way can be penny-wise, pound foolish in that you can make it less likely that an opponent will stack off. Also, why the check-raise? Even a small one says you have a big hand. They may call, but will be less likely to give you value on later streets.
