Force yourself to go backwards for increasing amounts of time. Work your way up to practicing backwards just about as much as you're going forwards. At some point, your body will get used to going the wrong direction and you won't even realize that you're going backwards anymore. But it takes time. Practice backwards c-cuts, and make yourself do backwards one-foot glides, even if you can only go half a foot right now. Then you can start getting into inside/outside edges, one foot scallops and all sorts of crazy things. But right now, just get your body balanced and practice being low and stable. Wear your gear! Especially pants/elbows/helmet.
