Hi there,
I used to have the same exact issue! Here's how i broke past that, and I now remember at the very least 2 dreams a night(just a few nights ago, i was able to recall 5 dreams, and One of which was Lucid!).
First of all, You have to want it. Find motivation, and be persistent! Never give up! The more you're trying to recall, the more you will, with time of course. Think about it like this: Your brain is basically a muscle, and if you keep trying to recall your dreams and training your brain to remember, you're strengthening it.(That thought always helped me keep at it!) When you first wake up in the morning, just sit there. Think, don't get frustrated if you can't recall any dreams immediately. Even to this day, when i wake up, i can't always remember my dreams right away. It takes me a couple minutes to actually think about it, (Unless i wake up at night, which I'm a light sleeper so i do a lot). Which brings me to my next point. Just like attempting WBTB and WILD, i find that waking up after around 6 hours of sleep, or after my REM sleep, I can very easily recall the dreams I had recently. Don't force it though, I find that trying to "force" my mind to recall dreams, actually makes it harder to recall! Everyone's different of course, but that's my experience. Never give up, always write your dreams down when you remember them(even if it's just a small fraction of the dream, write it down!), and tell yourself at night "I can recall my dreams If i want to, This is my mind, and I can do it!" I do this every night now, and I find it quite helpful! Once you start recalling more of your dreams, It'll be easier to start Lucid dreaming. Like I said before, be persistent, and never give up. Keep trying different methods and doing reality checks, and you'll Become Lucid. My first Lucid dream was actually a DILD(dream induced lucid dream), and happened as a result of questioning my reality/becoming more aware of my surroundings.
I hope that helps! (:

About the getting excited: Just close your eyes and try to clear your mind. Obviously that's easier said than done but, try this(It's basically part of a method that goes along with MILD), repeat this in your head "I will have a lucid dream" or something like "I will remember my dreams" and just repeat it over and over again until you start to feel real sleepy. I took that out of the MILD technique, and use it to kind of calm my mind down, and for me, it works wonders, not only for getting it in my head that I'll have a lucid dream, or remember my dreams, but it also gets my mind on ONE topic, rather than a million, and it helps me fall asleep quicker. Just find something that works for you. I wish you luck on your lucid journal! (:

Actually, yes. It's kind of annoying too! But I can safely tell you, after a couple months of determination, It got a lot easier, and I started remembering more dreams. Try really hard not to get frustrated! I find that it makes it much harder to accomplish anything when you're frustrated. Lucid dreaming is basically a skill, and it takes determination and persistence to learn and improve it. My first Lucid dream actually happened after I gave up on Lucid dreaming xD BUT it gave me the motivation I needed to keep going, and now I can recall several dreams a night, and Like I mentioned, I had a pretty interesting lucid dream this week. I'm not quite as skilled at it as I'd like to be, But I'm pretty persistent and confident that I'll improve. That's another thing I personally believe helps: Confidence. Just simply BELIEVE. xD
