Squishy brake pedal. But no fluid change or drain

The dealership wanted $230 to maintenance my rear brakes on my 2009 sedan. So I did it myself instead. Got new brake shoes, springs, and drums installed. Saved me about $100 doing it myself.

Only thing is, now I have a squishy brake pedal that isn't as firm as it was before. Anyone know why? Is it because the new brake shoes need time to self adjust? Maybe there is too much of a gap between the shoe and the drum? I did not have to do anything with the fluid. What do I need to do to get the firm brake pedal to return?
