I have been feeling my way through sticking with spark people while pregnant and it has been a lot of learning so far and I am sure a lot more to come. For one thing, even modest exercise goals may be unreasonable in the first trimester. For going the nap that I would give an arm for feel like the equivalent of working out for at least a half hour. I just going to have to accept the limitations of this phase and roll with it.
The biggest decision of all, however, is that I am not going to track my food daily after all. I had planned to, and I hoped that it would be a way to applaud myself for my healthy choices and make sure I was getting all my veggies, fruits and protein (at least the days when the nausea doesn't preclude such ideals). Instead, I am finding that it makes me stressed about how much I am eating, I end up not eating enough (too close to how I was eating before) and I end up sick with low blood sugar and feeling AWFUL. So, I have decided to only track once a week or so for the above listed reasons, but not every day. I'll try this for now and see how it goes.
Taking it day by day, just like I should be anyway.
