When I am sick of eating healthy, I like to get out my healthy cookbooks & look through them for ideas. The pictures look so yummy that it is hard not to get motivated to get back on track. I always seem to find something new & delicious.
I like Hungry Girl cookbooks the best!

Where I work we had a "healthy carry-in". We requested that everyone prepare a healthy meal and provide a recipe card. We then made a cookbook and passed out to all who participated. Many of the recipes could have been healthier, but having the cookbook allowed for some substitutions to be made. It was a great way to try out new foods!
Keeping health and exercise magazines around the house helps keep me motivated and on track. In the past few years I found myself browsing the computer, reading cookbooks and becoming more sedentary. I recently subscribed to several fitness magazines and found that just having them laying around my house in different places were gentle reminders. Now I am reading more healthy articles and less dessert recipes.
