Executing a Stored Procedure on certain days/dates

Hi,

I need to trigger a stored procedure only on a Monday, or on the 1st of the month.
Unfortunately, I have no access to the scheduled jobs in the SQL Server Agent, so cannot set up my own schedule. There is a scheduled job that runs daily, and all it does is trigger all daily stored procedures, so I can only execute my stored procedures from here. I think all I really need to do run a quick check at the start of the sp, and see if the current date is either a Monday, or a 1st of the month. I guess, something like this (and forgive me, I have very limited exposure to SQL) -- Below I am trying to trigger spTEST, only if the current day is a "Thursday"

SELECT
CASE WHEN DATENAME(DW,CONVERT(DATE,REPLACE(GETDATE(),'-',''),103)) = 'Thursday'
THEN EXEC ([mi].[spTEST])

two solutions

select case when datepart(dw,GETDATE())= 2 or datepart(dd,GETDATE()) =1 then EXEC ([mi].[spTEST] else print 'No Execution of any SP' end


OR

if datepart(dw,GETDATE())= 2 or datepart(dd,GETDATE()) =1
begin
EXEC ([mi].[spTEST]
end
else
begin
print 'No Execution of any SP'
end

The method below will not be affected by DATEFIRST or language settings:


IF DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()) % 7 = 0 --Monday (0=Mon,1=Tue,...,6=Sun).
OR DATEPART(DAY, GETDATE()) = 1 --first day of any month
    EXEC [mi].[spTEST]
