Weekdays or working days? (There is a difference.)

Mondays thru Fridays from the 1st of the current month up to today's date:
        Dim WeekDays As New List(Of DateTime)
        Dim today As DateTime = DateTime.Today
        For day As Integer = 1 To today.Day
            Dim dt As New DateTime(today.Year, today.Month, day)
            If dt.DayOfWeek >= DayOfWeek.Monday AndAlso dt.DayOfWeek <= DayOfWeek.Friday Then
            End If

I just improved Tomlinson's code by using the function AddDays:
Public Shared Function GetTotalWorkingDays() As List(Of DateTime)
	Dim weekDays As New List(Of DateTime)()
	Dim today As DateTime = DateTime.Now
	Dim dt As DateTime = today.AddDays(1 - today.Day)
	While dt <= today
		If dt.DayOfWeek >= DayOfWeek.Monday AndAlso dt.DayOfWeek <= DayOfWeek.Friday Then
		End If
		dt = dt.AddDays(1)
	End While
	Return weekDays
End Function
