You can do this with a SP.  I have a it selecting them only and then commented out an insert statement if you want to put them in a table.

NOTE:  You have to set the date of the first monday you want to find and the last day you want to go to.  This will do them all from the start date to the end date.

If you need to dynamically find the first monday from the current date let me know.
DECLARE @WorkingDate as datetime

 

 

-- set to the first StartDate you want for the first Sunday

Set @WorkingDate = '6/16/2008'

 

-- do till the end date you wnat reached

while @WorkingDate > '1/6/2008'

        Begin 

                -- insert current working Monday date, and then add 6 to that to get the next saturday (ending dat)

                --Insert Into DatabaseTableName

                --(MondayDate)

                --Values(@WorkingDate, DATEADD (dd, 7, @WorkingDate))
 

				select @WorkingDate

 

                -- increment sunday date for next loop

                Set @WorkingDate = DATEADD (dd, -7, @WorkingDate)                

                --print @WorkingDate

        end

Here you go this is all combined.  It finds the first monday going forward from the current date

Then gets the past 6 months worth of mondays from that date.


--datepart = Sunday = 1, Saturday = 7
 

DECLARE @WorkingDate as datetime

DECLARE @FirstMondayDate as datetime

DECLARE @EndDate as datetime

DECLARE @DayOfWeekLookingFor as int
 

-- set to the first StartDate you want for the first Sunday

Set @WorkingDate = GetDate()

Set @FirstMondayDate = ''
 

-- for monday

Set @DayOfWeekLookingFor = 2 
 

-- do this to find the number of the days of week found 

while @FirstMondayDate = ''

	Begin 

		-- if day of week matches what we are looking for add one to counter

		IF datepart(weekday, @WorkingDate) = @DayOfWeekLookingFor

			Set @FirstMondayDate = @WorkingDate

		

		-- increment date by one day and loop again

		Set @WorkingDate = DATEADD (dd, 1, @WorkingDate)		

		

	end
 

-- set the enddate to 6 months from the first monday we found

Set @EndDate = DATEADD (mm, -6, GetDate())
 

-- set working date to the first monday date we found above for next loop

Set @WorkingDate = @FirstMondayDate
 
 
 

-- this loops through from the first day found above to the last one requested

-- do till the end date you wnat reached

while @WorkingDate > @EndDate

        Begin 

                -- insert current working Monday date, and then add 6 to that to get the next saturday (ending dat)

                --Insert Into DatabaseTableName

                --(MondayDate)

                --Values(@WorkingDate, DATEADD (dd, 7, @WorkingDate))

				

				-- just select the date

                select @WorkingDate

 

                -- increment sunday date for next loop

                Set @WorkingDate = DATEADD (dd, -7, @WorkingDate)                

                --print @WorkingDate

        end
