Eric is living his life to the fullest right now, with his team exploring all of our earth's beauty in the mountains bordered by Tibet and Nepal. As of today they are in Tingri and getting ready to climb Cho Oyu.
I wanted to share just a few things that I learned from the EverestNews.com web site.
Cho Oyu, 26,906 feet (8201 meters) - the 6th highest mountain in the world.
Also known as the "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan, it is located at the frontier of Tibet and Nepal. Cho Oyu is part of the Himalayan Range and is 30 km west of Everest. For more info go to MountainGuides.com or EverestNews.com web site.
In addition to all of the summits that Eric has conquered in his life he is living a Gluten Free lifestyle. I am amazed to think of all the details that go into planning such expeditions - it boggles my mind! Just before Eric left he reassured me that he had all of his "Gluten Free Goodies" with him and he was ready for his trip. If Eric can stick to a GF menu while climbing the world's highest mountains then so can you.
Follow Eric's blog while they climb and summit Cho Oyu.

What a great way to celebrate Earth Day or month!
I had an interesting thing happen at 4 AM this morning. I woke up in pain, not unusual for me. I have chronic pain in addition to Celiac Disease, so my sleep is not so great at times. The thing about the pain that is unusual for me is that this was a very distinct spot at the bottom of my left foot! The very specific spot is just where the flat part of my left foot starts to arch, towards the upper area. I decided to rub it to try to work it out. While I was doing this, I remembered that I didn’t feel this pain in my foot before I went to bed. I know this because, I sort of have a ritual to help set the relaxation mood before I go to sleep. I know sounds goofy, but I need all the help I can get, to really get good sleep. I put organic lotion on my feet every night while I massage my feet. I use aromatherapy oils to scent the lotion as well. I also do this because it helps to release any tensions or pain in my body. I actually pay close attention to this because I feel pain from head to toe all day and night. Just as I began to rub this area I realized that something was different. There was a knot in that very specific area and … ouch! It hurts to rub it! The more I massaged it gently, it also alleviated it. I began to think what this very specific spot was telling me. I thought about looking up a reflexology chart to see what it was referring to for more insight. My curiosity was getting to me or maybe just holiday guilt of over indulgence. Regardless, this was a mystery that I wanted to figure out!
