Welcome! I know what you mean about the Northeast....I live in SE Massachusetts and my son and his wife live a block from the atlantic ocean. They've been hit hard...we all have. Do what you can with the exercise. Stressing about it will only serve to discourage your efforts. I have counted steps and it worked for me though now I use a GPS type pedometer...no step counting and I only use it when I go out to walk. I've used a couple of different types of step counting pedometers....and I found them helpful. What I found the most useful were the indoor walking/exercise programs that I could pop onto my computer or TV and use when I had the time. Several of us on the team do that because we get busy or because the weather is uncooperative. I think the best advice I could offer you right now is to relax......you can't do this wrong unless you quit so you'll get there!
If you post on the Coffee Chat thread and check in there from time to time you'll get to meet the wacky chatters...err, walkers......Welcome! I'll be chatting with you!

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
