MSSQL log shipping issues

I'm working on setting up some database servers to do log shipping for a DR situation.

We are going to be moving some servers and I want to have log shipping running in case something happens to one of the database servers.  We have a couple other recovery in place, but this is a pilot test for a future project as well.  So basically I need some assistance to make sure I have everything setup properly.

Getting to log shipping to run has been fairly easy, but the issue I have been seeing is that I'm now getting lots of errors.

For example:
The log shipping secondary database W1TSTSQ1.123prd has restore threshold of 45 minutes and is out of sync. No restore was performed for 794 minutes. Restored latency is 0 minutes. Check agent log and logshipping monitor information.

The log shipping primary database W1TSTSQ1.124prd has a backup threshold of 60 minutes and has not performed a backup log operation for 389 minutes

How do I ensure that the database will be ready to go if needed and how fi possible can i eliminated these errors?
