Bro, it seems to me that given your ultimate goal (which appears to be ~175 lbs and leaner than you currently are) that you would be better off pursuing that goal.
From my own experience it is easier to lose weight than it is to put on lean muscle mass (neither one being necessarily "easy"). IMO you would be taking the long road by trying to cut down now and then attempting to "bulk up" to 175.
My recommendation would be that you adopt a sensible eating program (diet) which includes consuming at least 1g protein per lb bodyweight, some good fats such as olive oil, fish oils etc, and some good carbs from veggies such as spinach, brocolli, yams, asparagus etc. Stay away from the whites (bread, rice, pasta, sugar). Switch to whole wheat bread, pasta, & brown rice and keep these in moderation - preferably earlier in the day.
As for training - there are plenty of effective workouts on this site. Just about any one of them will work for you as long as you train with intensity and push yourself. Switch it up every 6 weeks.
Cardio is not optional. 3 times a week is the bare minimum. I would seriously recommend that you get in some sort of cardio each day you get into the gym. It will benefit your lifting too.
