Default Not Eating

HI, I have a 5 month old female bearded dragon, she hasn't eaten anything today - not even her favourite crickets!
She is still active but just not eating, am I worrying about nothing?
Btw, her poops are a bit runny too.

Does her poop have a bad smell to it, when i mean bad i mean like is it worse than usual?

Also does she have a tendancy to dance about in her poop?

If your answer is yes i would look at taking her to a vet with possible parasites.

she may just be having an off day, like most women do (sorry couldnt resist the pun) i would just keep an eye on her, if she continues not to eat, i would advise a vet visit after 5-6 days (or any dramatic weight loss or signs of being lethargic)

As this guy said, probably just an off day... My beardy had a thing for running in his own crap... Cost me alot of vet bills for his fecal play time when he was young

Bearded Dragons do tend to go through phases with what they do and don't want to eat, some days mine will turn her nose up at an array of different livefood and the next she'll be shoving them down like there's no tomorrow, strange animals they are!
