Default How to avoid excessive use of the back leg, especially to initiate heel-side turns?

Last year while I was in Colorado I found myself doing this and I didn't realize it was bad until after I left (and the season was over). Today, the first time out this year, I avoided using my back leg as a full-out rudder, but I still find my self initiating turns (more specifically, heel-side turns) with my back leg as opposed to just leaning my whole body. Any steps I can take to avoid this in the future other than just "don't do it" (although, now that I'm done writing this, that does seem to be pretty good advice...).
