Update the date using a macro in an excel report

For one of my reports, I needed to update the date weekly in order to have the date corresponding to the period no matter when I will open the report. For instance, I needed to put the date every Monday so Monday 1 will be Monday 8 then Monday 15, etc. independently if I opened the file on Wednesday. This macro can update any dates, I mean, it can be monthly, daily, every 3 days, etc.
