As for arms there are a lot of machines but don't overwork them or it will cause more soreness than benefit. Truly two things (one I can't do at gym) and one I can...I learned in physical therapy and it helped my upper arms thin out. People say they can't lose the flab...well I did! I gained some back after not keeping up after PT but have the tools now.
Shoulder pulley (uses a chair, pulley, and door) the motions are great. I had to do 3 min of two types of pulls each 2-3x a week) after 5 weeks my arms looked great. This was in hand with using 2lb weights and doing a variety of workouts on them, normally 20 of each.
*I got my shoulder pulley on ebay for under $15 shipped and picked up my 2lb weights for $1 at a yard sale lol
In that case just google tabata protocol and look for wikipedia.

I think your goal weight is a little bit unrealistic. Or atleast, for me it would be. I suppose it just depends on the person. But as for your plan, I think you're doing great! Make sure to mix up your routine every now and again to work different muscles, and see better results. I also suggest doing more than running and strength training. Running actually doesn't burn nearly as many calories as people think it does, and it's a more strenuous workout, so you can't do it as long. I highly suggest biking, or using different machines at the gym.
