Default No poop

Hello just wondering if anyone's got any advice for us.
We've had our leucistic axolotl for about 2 months now, she is approx 6" long. Her staple diet is bloodworms with the odd prawn or few catfish pellets for variety, we're weaning her off being fed every single day so now she gets one or two "spa days" a week where we don't feed her or put her tank light on at all. Not sure how long exactly but she's definatly not pooped in the past week and usually she has no troubles with digestion at all - her tummy just gets a teeny bit rounder and as she's so pale you can sometimes see her tum get a little darker, she usually poops every 2 or 3 days. Now her tum is rounder and slightly darker for a few days but no pooh! Her back end's not floating, she's eating and acting completly normally. Should we be worried?

p.s. She's on sand and there's nothing in the tank she could swallow that could cause impaction.

Typical! Soon as I post on here she goes and does a poop!
Think she just likes worrying me sometimes
