    To start off I think you should know that it is physically impossible to pick and choose where you can burn fat from. Your body will burn fat from wherever it wants to no matter what type of exercises you do. With that being said situps and arm exercises won't get you lean in those areas. If you want to reduce your bodyfat while building muscle i would suggest a circuit routine. A circuit routine is generally 3 exercises involving the biggest muscle groups possible; a push, a pull, and a legs movement. For one example you could do a set of 25 on the bench press followed by a set of 25 machine rows, then a set of 25 squats. This will be considered one full circuit, you do them with virtually no rest if possible. You may take no rest or a long rest between each circuit however, determining on how much of a cardio workout you want to achieve with it. This with keep your body's heart rate up and keep you building muscle at the same time. I hope i explained that well enough for you.

    As for a diet plan, start tracking your calories to start off with. Keep your diet high in protein and adjust your calories accordingly each week to make sure you are losing weight.

    Now there is some interesting research dealing with the concept of spot reduction, and it states that you may be able to slightly alter body composition, not by true reduction of fat in that area, but by using high volume exercise to stimulate the growth of blood cells in that particular area, thereby increasing muscle mass in addition to inflammation related lipolysis. Not sure how effective it is, but its worth reading deeper into. =]
