She is Back on the Wellness Track
During the heart of the pandemic, "I feel like at the beginning I was kind of working out in an unhealthy way. I think I was just going for it because I felt like that was something I could control and of course that wasn't sustainable. And I wasn't really going online or taking classes or anything like that because I – I don't know I felt like I had to deal with this on my own, but that wasn't sustainable so I kind of fell off and now I'm really looking forward to introducing some new stuff into my routine as well, you know before I was on this working out alone tip and I'm LONELY now. I want to connect with people so this is an exciting way," she told HOLA.
This is What She Listens to When Working Out
"I'm actually a 90s girl! It's really funny cause I'm trying to get pumped and listening to- actually no- Alanis Morissette can really pump a girl up and you have such a mix you have some Alanis to TLC to Salt and Pepa so I'm into it, it takes me back to when I was a kid and free," she told Hola.
This is Her Morning Ritual
"I have hot water and lemon every morning before I eat anything. I drink that so my stomach settles and because it's good for your digestion. Plus, the lemon gives me an energy boost that I can't get from coffee. It's part of my morning ritual, and rituals are really good to balance stress and anxiety. This one really helps me a lot," she told Glamour.
This is One Go-To Meal
"That would be a vegetable stir-fry because it's so easy. I put olive oil, salt, pepper, a little paprika to have a little spice, and a little bit of apple cider vinegar to give it a bit of a tangy flavor. I make it with couscous or rice, and then grab the vegetables from the fridge and put them in a stir-fry. You can have a meal for two days," she told Glamour.
She's a Warrior
Guerrero is an activist, and has written about the deportation of her Colombian parents, which happened when she was just 14, in her shattering memoir In the Country We Love. (She also wrote My Family Divided, a coming-of-age memoir.) "My last name means warrior," Guerrero said. "I am the daughter of immigrants. It's not my entire identity, but certainly informs it. I've been able to use that truth to really propel me forward in a time where the odds were really against me. And a lot of the odds are against a lot of people who go through separation or the systemic barriers that are in place for a lot of black and brown women," she told SheKnows.
