Fun... Sweat... Should those words be in the same sentence?

I have to say I don't love sweating too much. I've said before that I love the feeling of clean blood pumping through my body, but I don't know that I've had fun doing something that makes me sweat since high school.
Last year for my birthday my sweet hubby got me a Wii Fit. And it's fun, but it's doesn't make me sweat. And the activities on there that do make me sweat, don't feel very fun because you've got to run for like 20 minutes. It just gets old quick.
So I've been looking for something I can do to use the Wii for it's intended purpose - to make exercise fun for me.
I've heard good things about Zumba so I looked into that game, but when I started asking around I heard better things about the Just Dance games. So, I decided to treat myself to a new Wii game, and I ordered Just Dance 2.
Well, yesterday it came, and OH MY GOODNESS... after doing one song I'm already feeling a little damp. By the third song I have sweat dripping down my back and legs.
And the best part is that I am having fun while I'm sweating! I can't put it down. It's funny to think I may have to set a timer for myself to limit how much I do it, not to make sure I get in the cardio time I need each day!
I think I'll go sneak in one more dance before I get going! lol
