That's no problem at all right there, hardly anything was ingested. It won't affect her at all. :)

Update!

She is doing much better now, her poops are coming out nice and solid. There is just one issue. I think the bulb is too strong. Its 150 Watt. I just noticed this blackened coloring on the left side of her head, and I am worried its burning her.

Before I was using a 100 Watt bulb, but for some reason it wasnt getting her basking spot hot enough (around 80 F). I wonder if this is why she has been glass surfing so much and and hiding in her hut.

Also, she had a little piece of sand lodged under a scale on her head and when i tried dislodge it, a scale came off. It looked like it really hurt because she flinched. Here is what it looks like.

Good to hear that her stool is more normal again. :) The scale should be fine, that's pat of a lizard's life. If it gets to looking sore you can put a tiny dab of neosporin or raw honey on it. If you use honey you need to be sure there are no loose insects in the tank. I don't see a black spot on her head, if you mean the area to the side that is called an epaulet and they darken naturally. As far as the temperature goes, make sure you''re able to measure it properly.
