Annoying side to side movement in the image

If that makes any sense and you know what I’m talking about what are some of the things I can do in order to get rid of that side to side shift in my image.

Just as it is impossible to walk around and hold a static shot, it's going to be hard to move your relatively large mass first in a new direction and expect no change in the sled's direction. Typically, it's move the camera first...
That said, and beyond even more practice, check that your gimbal doesn't have some stickyness. Also check that the arm's hinge joints are free. I also suggest taking a video of yourself as you do this move; you might discover something that way.
Sounds like you are being very critical of your work (good!); that's the first step in the right direction.

practice... i had similar issue after courses, i had to change a little the way i walk, just try walk "smoother".
Quick thought and it may be obvious but if you're using a camcorder that has steadyshot, is this disabled? It can cause weird image wobble and lag on panning or with direction changes.

of course practice helps but if you are flying a small camera you may want to consider increasing the rotational inertia of your rig
for example I fly my 5d with a vlock battery on the rails which spreads out the mass considerably
