What is the distance from the top of the existing slab to grade [outside the garage]? Your solution sounds half way decent but I'd run the flashing down the inside face of the new CMU, then under the new CMU [set in mastic as I noted before] and then be sure to run the flashing far enough down the exterior face of the slab and the existing foundation wall-- I'd go may be 12". in this way, if water seeps into the new CMU you have protection against it going any fruther into the new floor cavity. Also, apply a good water-resistant coating on the exterior face of the new CMU to seal it against water seepage. Hope this is clear!
