Another thought that comes to mind is to expect to have setbacks. Instead of viewing every setback as proof that you've "failed," take them as opportunities to fine-tune your game.
You only really fail if you quit -- that is, if you stay down when you fall down. As long as you keep pushing forward, no matter how slow going, you're not a failure.
Also it helps to remember that this is a life-long process. You'll be working on your health always. There's no winning, no end -- just better skills.
You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
