Weakening my floor?
 
Would it be ok to remove the cross bridging for my ceiling joists for a few days until I can put them back up? There is nothing overly heavy in the room above. Thanks

All there doing is keeping the joist from twisting and reducing floor bouncing if there's a floor above.

so it'd be ok for a few days then?

Yes, but why are you taking them out?
There not going to to be able to just be put back in unless you have complete access over them/
You would have to replace them with blocking between the joist instead.
