skip a day

I have been studying not skipping a day.
Does this sound natural to mean that "I've been studying everyday"?
Thanks for your help. :)

    No. This is how you would use your sentence:

    [A enters the room and sees B reading a newspaper.]
    A: "Are you skipping a day of study?"
    B: "No. I have been studying,[note the comma] not skipping a day. = I have been studying; I have not been skipping a day.

    I have been studying not skipping a day. :thumbsdown:

    It reads ambiguously. You could say it in answer to “Why have you skipped a day when you should have been studying?”.

    I’ve been studying continuously, without missing/skipping a single day. :thumbsup:
