You appear to be blessed with a normal metabolism. Your slightly elevated morning numbers may simply be the normal dawn phenomenon where your body prepares your body for the morning activity of going out and finding food and water (our bodies still think we live in caves!).
I am on a long acting insulin, 1000 mg of metformin twice a day, eating essentially nothing white (no bread, rice, potatoes, tortillas, chips, corn...) and my morning sugars are running 100-107. You have me beat!
If you want to exercise you could try what I do. I joined the YMCA near my home and swim about
1/2 hr. 3X a week. I wear flippers to put the majority of the exercise on the large muscles in my legs without any joint impact. I have degenerative joint disease in my spine and fibromyalgia and I find that this form of exercise works super for me.
