Here's the code to get the current day of the week (1=Sunday to 7-Saturday)
SELECT DATEPART(dw, GETDATE()) 

Open in new window

So, doing a little math...
Declare @dt date = '10-25-13'

SELECT DATEADD(d,  - (DATEPART(dw, @dt) + 2), @dt) as last_thursday,
	DATEADD(d,  - (DATEPART(dw, @dt) - 2), @dt) as this_monday 

Open in new window

btw Here's an article I wrote on How to build your own SQL Calendar Table that demonstrates lots of goofy-riffic date expressions you can use.

Here is how you can determine the most recent Tuesday:
DECLARE @myTuesdayDate date, @myMondayDate date;
SELECT @myTuesdayDate = DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, 2, GETDATE()) / 7 * 7, 1);

Open in new window

Assign this to a date variable, then do a
SELECT @myMondayDate = DATEADD(day, 6, @myTuesdayDate)

Open in new window

and you get your next Monday.  Then use these values as a range for your select
