Sounds like a a simple leak to me. If the fluid is leaking and lower then normal, it'll make the pedal a lot less firm.

Did you mess with the cylinder at all during the brake maintenance?

Nope... but i just checked it and the fluid is over the full line so im thinking it might just be overflowing.
