It's not that difficult to check your altimeter while you're tracking. Are you using an analog or digital altimeter?
A chest strap one will make it easier but you should be able to look at it on your wrist while still tracking. If you can't practice more.

I can, but it IS difficult at my extremely low skill level and during a really hard track. Everything becomes very twitchy at a point. It's like a balancing act lol but I will definitely learn. Trying to make it like second nature without having to think about it.

Bingo. Keep at it..you'll get better and better at it as time and experience go on. Obviously, you understand the importance of tracking a straight line.

The cloud altitude observation is a good thing, I use that too.
I use my dytter as a reminder - at the warning altitudes, I should already have started the process of breaking off or waving off. If it beeps before I've initiated the procedures, it tells me I've had a problem with altitude awareness and need to shape up.
